Reviews by Jerry Gould

Augustus Carp, Esq.

by Henry Howarth Bashford

One of the gems of early 20th century English satire and in Augustus Carp it produced one of the most gloriously repellent and pompous protagonists of any comic novel.

Originally published anonymously, it was later revealed as the work of HH Bashford, physician to George VI. If you want to see the wellspring of David Brent and Alan Partridge, Augustus is their loathsome progenitor.
