I bought this kindle single having previously read and enjoyed False Economies by the same author. Although they were, apparently, written many years apart, the voice of the author still shines through. I suspect there is a very heavy autobiographical element to them both, but no less interesting for that.

Simply extraordinary. Written with keenly observed wit and a skill for making the humdrum hilarious. The author draws a lot of the content from his own life experiences I should think, making this craftsman like work a real winner. Gordon Haber, I salute you.
