Product Description

excuse and stayed...' and so it was that William Donaldson, creator of HENRY ROOT, began his career as a London brothel-keeper-and met for the first time Emma Jane (once Miss Crampton, typist), Black Dolores and Big Elaine (a country girl at heart, who still thinks sex a trifle rude and has therefore decided that charging for it is the least morally confusing thing to do). Not to mention the constant flow of bankers, cabinet ministers and Hooray Henrys whose strange and sometimes endearing demands make every day a fount of wonder - and hilarity.
'One of the funniest books written for many a moon' Stephen Pile
'A minor classic of uncivilised bawdry' Kenneth Tynan
'In thoroughly bad taste but very funny indeed' Daily Telegraph
'The best book I've ever read' Richard Ingrams
'Hilarious and totally disgraceful' Sunday Times

5.0 out of 5 stars Very funny indeed 12 Jun 2014
Willy Donaldson chronicles the low life of a gentleman pimp. It's a hell of a funny book, and a disgrace that it's out of print. Genuinely funny novels are few and far between, and Both The Ladies And The Gentlemen pisses from a great height on most Kindle books masquerading as comic masterpieces.Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is extremely funny - well worth a read 28 Dec 2011
By Paul
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I'm not sure how much of this is true, but it is really amusing. Donaldson recounts his tale. He really doesn't give a dam and lives (the low) life to the full. Not for the narrow minded.
