The Diary of a Nobody

The Diary of a Nobody
by George Grossmith, Weedon Grossmith

Publisher: A. A. Knopf 1921
ISBN/ASIN: 1853262013
Number of pages: 334

First published in 1892, this classic satire on English snobbery remains razor sharp 100 years on. The 'nobody' of the title is city clerk Mr Pooter who, inflated with pomposity well above his top hat, decides to record the daily round of his family and friends for posterity. The result is a hugely entertaining compilation of mundane mishaps and misunderstandings as poor self-important Mr Pooter endeavours to compete with the more lively characters who invade his diary. The humour of this book endures because fortunately so do the Mr Pooters of this world.
