Robert is so like Woody Allen! His later works are brilliant (including The Abominable Showman), but I return again and again to Brentford, the funnier ones, (though everything is relative!). East of Ealing is brilliant, and I'm reading the Sprouts of Wrath for the umpteenth time.

By the way, could the young lad in the Abominable Showman be James Pooley???

He hadn't quite hit the stride he would in the mid 90s, but this is a very entertaining yarn and some of the running jokes are already making an appearance. Not a good starting point but still fun

I have all of Robert Rankin books but wanted to read them all again only this time in order, so as I now have a Kindle I have been ordering them all again on Kindle as with my eyes getting bad I can make the writing bigger and don't need glasses so I can enjoy the books and relax in bed, I would recommend all of Robert Ranking books to anyone and you can read them in any order as I did the first time, he is a fantastic writer, no matter how stressful the day has been his story's manage to take me away and make me laugh

The original Brentford trilogy is one of the funniest series of books I've ever read. I can go back to them time and time again and find things to laugh out loud at. Very highly recommended.

Always been a fan of Robert Rankin's work, now able to replace my paperbacks with e-books

As always Robert Rankin gives a jolly good read. Eccentric, very English humour, puns and allusions abound for people of a similar age to Rankin.
