    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....

    ©1994 Stephen Fry (P)1994 Random House Audio

    Brilliant, witty, weird, clever!

    This is honestly the most witty and brilliantly worded book I know. Apart from the wonderfully weird story, Stephen Fry invented SO many clever similes, curses and descriptions that made me snigger my way through the book. His bourish anti hero Ted Wallace is compellingly rude, sexist, cynical and wise, yet at 66 he struggles to solve the mystery of his best friend's family in childlike wonder and curiousity. Noone else could have created this tale of human hopes, weaknesses and peculiarities in such perfect comedic timing. Definitely Stephen Fry's masterpiece, and just as excellently performed.
