Fiction - Published: 12/Jun/2012 - ISBN: 9780241956861

'I fail to see - because I do not happen to be a 'Somebody' - why my diary should be not be interesting'

Mr Pooter is a man of modest ambition, content with his clerkly lot. So why is he always in trouble with disagreeable tradesmen, impudent young clerks and wayward friends? And what is he to do about his son Lupin's distinctly unsuitable choice of bride? However hard he tries, life piles its little mishaps on his head - but he's not about to give up.

The Diary of a Nobody is a sharp, hilarious satire of suburban values and remains as pertinent now as it was when it was first published a hundred years ago.

'The funniest book I know - the jewel at the heart of English comic literature.' William Trevor, Mail on Sunday
