*Shortlisted for the Booker Prize in 1978*

Found on the bookshelf at a Torquay Backpacker hostel. This is a lovely little hardcover and a must read on my quest to conquer the Booker Prize shortlist archive.

5 out of 10

I really struggled with this book. I was most definitely not the target audience for it and felt the humour and 'issues' about as flacid as Jake's thing was at times. Middle aged issues as viewed, dealt with and told by a man. Extremely British humour and situation comedy. Jake's thing, not my thing.

WILD RELEASE NOTES:

Left on the book table in the View Tube cafe while meeting up some folk from Twitter. I was moored at Old Ford Lock so the wander around the Greenway was a pleasant Sunday stroll.
