Rita fell down the stairs at twenty-two minutes past midnight.' Robin Cooper, author of the TIMEWASTER LETTERS and RETURN OF THE TIMEWASTER LETTERS, turns his hand to diary writing in this hilarious new novel. All the absurdity, bad luck and boundless optimism of his previous books are here, as we discover the man behind the letters. The year starts badly for Robin, losing his job for sending so many letters in work time, and for his wife Rita, who sprains her ankle (yet again). But Robin has a cunning plan - his marrying of the crossword and sudoku into his devilish 'crossoku', which might just make their fortune . . . In the tradition of Adrian Mole and A DIARY OF A NOBODY, this is a hilarious and strangely heartwarming story of a great British comic character.
Robin Cooper is the author of the smash-hit title The Timewaster Letters published by Michael O'Mara Books. Spoon Collector, wasp expert, professional fish fryer and inventor of the peanut suit, Robin Cooper is all of these things, it just depends to whom he's writing.
Robin Cooper might also be the pseudonym for Robert Popper. Robert Popper is a BAFTA-nominated writer and television producer, and co creator of BBC2's hit comedy series Look Around You.
