One of the worst-written books I've read for a long time. The characters were all badly-drawn caricatures, and there was virtually no story line or plot.

Humorous characters but not much of a story to grip the reader.

A strange cast of characters with no real purpose and no character. Ultimately didn't care about any of them and as a result gave up on this book before the end.

Format: Paperback
Excellent, a wonderful and very revealing semi-biographical (full?) story which is genuinely funny and touching. Long overdue, finally in print in the UK.
