Diary of a Nobody by George & Weedon Grossmith

About the book

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.

 

Reviewed by Olivers Battery WI

“A Quick and easy read but very much ‘of it’s time’ Some themes relevant – children coming home, etc and making choices that parents generally baulk at. Names used were ‘interesting’
