History : The Brilliant Debut Novel From Miles Jupp Hardback



A fiendishly funny tragicomedy about a man on the edge, from much-loved actor and comedian Miles Jupp. . Clive Hapgood is feeling stuck. The private school he teaches at is consuming his life, no thanks to wretched headteacher Julian Crouch.

The gentle country life Clive envisaged has stifled him and left his marriage on the brink.

What he needs is a holiday - something to remind him and Helen what life used to be like.

But when things don't go to plan, and an incident at school begins to weigh heavy on his head, Clive's life starts to unravel in front of him.

Has he got it in him to turn things around, whatever the cost?

After all, it's his own time he's wasting... For readers of Jonathan Coe, Mark Watson, Michael Frayn and David Nicholls.
