Set in the world of a large advertising company Storyboard focuses
on the decision by the agency's clients, Hoppness, Silch & Co.
('the soap people') to destroy one of their competitor's products.
Into this scheme are thrust copyeditor Sophia Last and her boss
Hugh Grover, as well as over-conscientious Account Executive Keith
Bates, his wife Sylvia and their son Stephen. Also caught up in
these events is Ralph Cavell, a young research graduate turned
journalist. Storyboard is not primarily a novel about advertising.
It is an exploration of how people can be corrupted, and ultimately
destroyed, by their desire for money and power and how even those
people who start out with good intentions can be misled from their
original purpose. It is also a critique of powerful corporations
that are controlled and organised by the greed of those who operate
them. An absorbing and adult novel, Storyboard cemented John
Bowen's reputation as a mature and intelligent novelist when it was
first published in 1960.
