Diary Of A Nobody

Authors: George Grossmith, Weedon Grossmith

Publisher: Wordsworth Editions (1994)

So Charles Pooter of The Laurels, Brickfield Terrace Holloway, commences his journal. A somewhat stuffy but very human senior clerk in an undescribed business, Pooter likes nothing better than to putter around his suburban home -- perhaps because of his ability to make high drama of trivial circumstances, and get himself into humiliating (and often very humorous) situations in front of other people. This comic novel told in diary format may seem tame and rather dry to some modern readers, but it holds just much interest as the daily updates on Facebook and Twitter!

Doctor In The House

Author: Richard Gordon

Publisher: House Of Stratus (2011)

Richard Gordon’s acceptance into St Swithan’s medical school came as no surprise to anyone, least of all him – after all, he had been to public school, played first XV rugby, and his father was, let’s face it, ‘a St Swithan’s man’. Surely he was set for life. It was rather a shock then to discover that, once there, he would actually have to work, and quite hard. Fortunately for Richard Gordon, life proved not to be all dissection and textbooks after all… This hilarious hospital comedy is perfect reading for anyone who’s ever wondered exactly what medical students get up to in their training. Just don’t read it on your way to the doctor’s!

Author: Richard Gordon

Part of a series: Doctor in the House

Publisher: Penguin Books Ltd (1970)

Dr Gaston Grimsdyke’s penchant for passion is given a powerful push when he encounters the luscious Lucy Squiffington. But the fact that he’s already engaged to sweet Anemone seems to present a problem of insoluble complexity; until problems in skirts pile high with the emergence of wife-worn cousin Miles. Add the Jellybone Sisters, a troupe of female contortionists, to a comic saga of misadventure that embraces a naked Sir Lancelot Spratt and a clutch of girl delinquents, and you’ll see why Doctor in the Swim is a man on the point of drowning.

Don Camillo Meets Hells Angels

Author: Giovanni Guareschi

Part of a series: Don Camillo

Publisher: Penguin Books (1974)

The 1960s catch up with Don Camillo and his old rival, Peppone, the Communist mayor, with a vengeance. Don Camillo is lumbered with a trendily ecumenical curate and Peppone is challenged by a Maoist splinter group. The Italian Economic Miracle floods the town with its dubious benefits while the Po Valley reverberates to motor-bike gangs vying for the favours of Don Camillo’s infinitely resourceful and totally unscrupulous teenage niece... Small wonder that the crucified Christ over the high altar has to remind the fulminating priest more than once that he, too, was once a long-haired revolutionary.
