Perfect Man, The
'Mad, bad and dangerous to know' was the epithet attached to Byron, the most popular poet of his time. Fiona Pitt-Kethley is his twentieth-century heir. Discussed by everyone, admired by many and reviled by those less enlightened, she became, after the publication of Sky Ray Lolly and Private Parts, the most widely read and controverisal poet of 1988. The full-frontal frankness that is the hallmark of her reputation remains undiminished in The Perfect Man, a no-holds-barred examination of men in all their forms, in all their states of dress (and undress) and all their virtues and imperfections.
