Item description for Modern De Quincey: Autobio. of an Opium... by H. R. Robinson, Gerry Abbott, Kee-cheok Cheong, Mark Lepko, Don Snyder, Jon Tyson & Sylvia Yount...
Captain Robinson, completing a posting as a young British administrator in remote northern Burma, returned to Mandalay in 1923 to await a new assignment. One evening, Robinson and two friends, came upon an opium den. While his friends called it a night, Robinson stayed on to sample the forbidden pleasures within - a decision that was to alter his life forever. Thus commences an autobiographical account of the seduction of a naive young romantic by the East, and of his eventual narrow escape from death.
