Perceptive and funny,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Man Who Dropped the Le Creuset on His Toe and Other Bourgeois Mishaps (Hardcover)
I bought this book for my son, who's always hated to be considered 'middle class' despite a good public school upbringing. I thought he might enjoy laughing at himself and learn that everyone these days considers themselves middle class. I don't think I'm going to give it to him, though; it makes me laugh too much myself and I find myself looking at my friends in a different light and wondering which of the characters describes them best.
Christopher Matthew writes with affection and gentle mockery and it's a very funny combination.
