It is a real, laugh-out-loud romp through a completely crazy boating trip up the Thames and I challenge you not to find something to chuckle over on every page!
The narrator is a pompous, self-congratulatory ass who seems entirely unaware of his own shortcomings while eminently critical of others'. The tone of the novel is tongue-in-cheek/ ironic with some unforgettable moments of true comic genius. I hesitate to outline any of the plot as I don't want to spoil it for you but I will say that the language and style are as fresh and immediate as anything you will read today.
