The Diary of a Nobody, Paperback Book

The Diary of a Nobody Paperback

Illustrated by Weedon Grossmith

Part of the Wordsworth Classics series

Description

With an Introduction and Notes by Michael Irwin, Professor of English Literature, University of Kent at Canterbury. The Diary of a Nobody is so unassuming a work that even its author, George Grossmith, seemed unaware that he had produced a masterpiece.

For more than a century this wonderfully comic portrayal of suburban life and values has remained in print, a source of delight to generations of readers, and a major literary influence, much imitated but never equalled. If you don't recognise yourself at some point in The Diary you are probably less than human.

If you can read it without laughing aloud you have no sense of humour.
