5.0 out of 5 stars Much needed book, 5 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Sultan of Zanzibar, The (Hardcover)
Horace de Vere Cole was a the best of the practical jokers of the 1920's whose elaborate jokes resulted from the first World War breakdown of pomposities. Whereas his own life ended sadly, his escapades brought much needed wide relief and amusement, especially to the soldiers at the front and it was high time for them to be recorded. (I could have done with more of them.)

His `pranks' should be judged as being typical of and appropriate to the period and not, as in the review by Lynnn Truss, from a 21st Century, overanalltic and pruriant, viewpoint. Strange that a humerist should have missed the point.

Heard about him years ago and had to read the book when I saw the review. My friends didn't like it though - a matter of taste - when I recomended it to my book club.
