Fry's usual surrealism in a country setting,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Hippopotamus (Paperback)
I can only describe the twists and turns that this book takes as shocking. Not hit you in the face shocking, but enough to make me hitch my breath as I travelled out of London on the train.
Fry is simply delicious in his writing style - clever, sharp and descriptive only to the point of necessity.
Not as outlandish and fiesty as the Star's Tennis Balls, but certainly a pleasant (if bizarre) surprise.
