This book never fails to amuse. It might be difficult going for modern readers, but I think well worth reading for its light wit, and the ability to make me smile. The story of the Willow Pattern is a favourite chapter.

Delighted to find some Ernest Bramah books on Kindle. I just love the way that this wordsmith from Weston-Super-Mare can twist Mandarin doggerel into his bizarre but excellent view on the world.

What do P G Wodehouse, Damon Runyon and Ernest Bramah have in common? First, they were all extraordinary comic writers with an astonishing ability to choose exactly the right words, and the knack of perfectly matching style to plot. Second, they each manipulated language to give their characters and narrators a unique voice, entirely artificial and self-contained (Bertie Wooster's Knutspeak, Runyon's overarticulate historic-present mobsters, Bramah's wondefully elegant circumlocutions). Third, they created pocket universes for their characters to live and play in.

It's wonderful to see Bramah back in print after too many years in the wilderness. If you only buy one book this year, make it this one

If you want to wander in a garden of bright images read Ernest Bramah!

It is a great pity that American English has been used in reproduction from the original which is quintessentially English.
