A charming satire of middle-class suburbia by George and Weedon Grossmith, with original illustrations from the latter and an afterword by Paul Bailey. "The funniest book in the world." -Evelyn Waugh Proud to be ensconced with his wife Carrie at 'The Laurels' in the desirable London suburb of Holloway, bank clerk Charles Pooter decides to keep a diary. From the frequent visits from his dear friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing to the ups and downs of his feckless son Lupin, the self-regarding Mr Pooter considers, mistakenly, that all aspects of his life are worthy of note. The result is a hilarious spoof and a perfectly pitched satire on late Victorian society. The Diary of a Nobody is a comic masterpiece which has been hugely influential since its first publication in 1892.
