Troy Chimneys purports to be the private memoirs of Miles Lufton, a minor politician of Regency-era Britain. In them he recounts, with tongue partially in cheek, the battle between the two sides of his personality: the man of sensibility versus the ruthless social climber. But as he charms his way into love and power, the duel threatens to destroy him.
In Margaret Kennedy’s later novels, Anita Brookner observed, “virtue does not triumph, patience is not rewarded, people do not receive... their just deserts.” A tragicomic confession, by a hero worthy of Jane Austen, Troy Chimneys is the apogee of Kennedy’s late style.
