Sex, religion, mad relatives and something nasty in the woodshed. Great stuff.

Thanks Estherase, received in the post this morning - and unsolicited bonus book - just a cynical ploy to clear your shelves, I know your game!

ps. is the piccy your cat, he's a mean-looking animal, a "cat in sheep's clothing"??

Thanks Esther. A bit of an odd book this, I didn’t find it laugh-out-loud funny, but enjoyed the great cast of weird and wonderful members of the Starkadder family – although they reminded me more of folk from deepest, darkest Suffolk than E.Sussex ;-) I loved the way that our heroine Flora Poste set out to sort out her ‘untidy’ family of cousins as a bit of a jolly gap-year project. I’ve read that this book was written as a parody of the trend of ‘earthy passionate’ novels of the time (written in 1932); I wouldn’t know anything about that, but its quite good fun nonetheless.

ps. what was the nasty thing in the woodshed?

Released on Monday, January 05, 2004 at On the steps up to Bag End, Hobbiton, The Shire in Matamata, Waikato New Zealand.

I know for a fact that this was found, because a Hobbiton guide (of course Middle Earth is in New Zealand) radioed our tour group to see if a book had been left behind! Hopefully someone will find and journal, or my stunning coup de grace would be in vain
