Adam Murray, the protagonist of ""A Parish of Rich Women,"" has recently returned from Beirut to endless rounds of parties in Chelsea and country weekends in Kent, to the nightly dissipations of his friends, and to the book he is unable to finish. Alienated from the aimless, cloistered excesses of the privileged English life, he is easily persuaded by the mysterious Butterworth to return to the pitted buildings, the earthworks, the thump of shellfire in a city under siege.
