Inhaltsangabe

Ted Wallace is an old, sour, womanising, cantankerous, whisky-sodden beast of a failed poet and drama critic, but he has his faults too. Fired from his newspaper, months behind on his alimony payments, and disgusted with a world that undervalues him, Ted seeks a few months repose and free drink at Swafford Hall, the country mansion of his old friend Lord Logan.

But strange things have been going on at Swafford. Miracles. Healings. Phenomena beyond the comprehension of a mud-caked hippopotamus like Ted....

Wonderfully whacky and most entertaining

The ignorant bulley that accidentally saves the day - elderly poet and has-been womanizer Ted is "hired" by his goddaughter Jane to find out whether his other godchild David is indeed a holy healer. A very English "summer in a country mansion" tale, but with a twist. Stephen Fry's outstanding wit and eloquence both in the story and its performance make this a truly special audiobook!
