Summary

The memoir of a man who simply wants to be loved.

Henry Robson is suffering. He is a bored, balding, failing actor living all alone in rural England. When two choices present themselves, he inadvisably selects both. Initially, a torrid affair seems to tick all the boxes, but any happiness derived from the liaison soon unravels when Henry, untrained as a teacher, accepts employment at a school run by Piers Halliday, a certifiable control freak and true English eccentric.

The book charts the adventures and misadventures of this lovable but hapless rogue, a man all the more endearing for his weaknesses. Laugh as slapstick jostles with the surreal; cry at moments of utter poignancy as adopted baby Henry, goaded by his lover, sets off in search of his birth-mother.

Clear, Expressive Voice

I don't quite know what exactly I should write, in some ways I found this novel was more suitable for older listeners. In all honesty I couldn't complete this, the style was exquisite but it just didn't offer me much in the way of entertainment and laughs.
Tim Bartholomew the narrator, however performed well, quite remarkably actually.
