The Diary of a Nobody

by George and Weedon Grossmith

I have alays enjoyed this book. The main character fancies himself to be a nobody...but he is a nobody with aspirations. He finds the most trivial things to be worthy of expounding upon and babbling about. Charles Pooter is the original Basil Fawlty- getting himself into awkward and humiliating positions much to the chagrin of his family.

There were sections that had me laughing out loud and sections that made me cringe with discomfort. A worthy read, fairly fast paced once you get past the dated style.

Author of the Day

David Niall Wilson
David Niall Wilson has had experiences in real life that can rival anything you would find in a novel. It is a good thing too, as the stories he collected while walking these strange and interesting paths has shaped him as a writer. David is not only the author of numerous novels and short stories, but also runs his own print, digital and audio publishing company. This makes him a busy man indeed, but we did manage to catch up with him to find out more about his novel, Nevermore, his fascination with history and some of his most unique travel experiences.
