Damian Baxter is hugely wealthy and dying. He lives alone in a big house in Surrey, England, looked after by a chauffeur, butler, cook, and housemaid. He has but one concern—his fortune in excess of five hundred million and who should inherit it on his death. Past Imperfect is the story of a quest. Damian Baxter wishes to know if he has a living heir. By the time he married in his late thirties he was sterile (the result of adult mumps), but what about before that unfortunate illness? Had he sired a child? He sets himself (and others) to the task of finding his heir.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“It’s like a visit to an English country estate: breezy, beautiful, and charming.” New York Times Book Review
“It’s not only the rich who are different, it’s the British upper classes too. This complicated truth, all the more palatable if delivered amusingly, has been successfully tackled by such insiders as P. G. Wodehouse, Evelyn Waugh, and Nancy Mitford, and is now resurrected by Julian Fellowes.” Miami Herald
“This is a book for a hot winter beach, an escape from life as we know it.” Independent (London)
“Deservedly compared to Tom Wolfe, Fellowes, with his ability to document the aristocracy with a sociologist’s eye, fashions intriguing narratives.” Publishers Weekly
