This is a book I ordered on the recommendation of my cousin Terry, who really loves the author. We were talking about humourous novels (I find the humourous novel a tricky thing, and have low tolerance for ones which try to hard to be funny. On the other hand, I do really love it when one succeeds without going over the top. But I digress...) and she recommended this author, who I was not familiar with. So I thought I'd give it a try. We'll see (eventually - it may, of course, take some time to read)!
