A Short Gentleman, Paperback Book
3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)

Description

How did Robert Purcell, distinguished barrister and perfect specimen of the British Establishment, end up in prison?

An intellectual giant but an emotional pygmy, Robert is a man struggling to come to terms with the forces that have brought him down, from the wife who wanted him to change, to the ex-girlfriend who came back to haunt him and the childhood bully who turned into an adult bully.

Despite everything, Robert remains the same magnificently self-righteous man he always was, utterly resistant to therapy, change and the emotional demands of the opposite sex.

Amusing satire on modern life, marriage and the legal profession. The narrator is totally lacking a sense of humour or irony and takes himself very, very seriously. Reminded me of 'Diary of a Nobody' and 'Augustus Carp, by himself'.
