Product Description

Review

Skipton is a superb comic creation. -- The New Statesman

The best-handed comic writing we have had for some time. -- The Guardian

From the Publisher

Pamela Hansford Johnson's work is now almost entirely out of print despite the fact that she is a very fine novelist. But with the recent reading of one of her books on BBC Radio Four, interest in her work is reviving.

I'm halfway through this book. It's hilarious. Very
vivid. I've never read anything quite like it. The
fact that grumpy idealogues are denouncing it here is
a sign of how wickedly funny it is. (Grumpy idealogues
are oblivious to funny, but they have a good nose for
wickedness.)

Entertaining but unremarkable May 21 2006

I would really offer this review only 3.5 stars, if such were allowed. I found the authors style quite engaging, and enjoyed the read very much, but the overall content and story were not particularly stellar. I had hoped for something along the lines of Saki (H.H. Munroe) but such was not to be. If there is ever a dearth of literature in my 'to read' pile I shall consider more by this author, but probably not until then...
