This book made you feel like you knew Bob Altman...the first big movie, the wives, the genius, the alcohol and pot. The narration is brillliant. Highly recommended.

In this comedic masterpiece, three young men, increasingly given to thoughts of hypochondria, decide to embark on a journey along the river Thames. Confident that the fresh air and daily exercise will grant them immunity from a myriad of illnesses and diseases, they pack up their frying pans, toothbrushes, food and canine companion, Montmorency, and set off on an unexpected adventure.

Liked this a lot. Very eccentric old men taking a jolly. Found myself giggling as you pictured them, and Laurie is a fantastic reader.
