The Diary of a Nobody

Proud to be ensconced with his wife Carrie at 'The Laurels' in the desirable London suburb of Holloway, bank clerk Charles Pooter decides to keep a diary. From the frequent visits from his dear friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing to the ups and downs of his feckless son Lupin, the self-regarding Mr Pooter considers, mistakenly, that all aspects of his life are worthy of note. The result is a hilarious spoof and a perfectly pitched satire on late Victorian society.

The Diary of a Nobody is a comic masterpiece that has been hugely influential since its first publication in 1892.

This edition features Weedon Grossmith's original illustrations and an afterword by novelist Paul Bailey.

Portrait
George Grossmith enjoyed a successful career spanning four decades as an accomplished singer, comic actor and songwriter. He was particularly renowned for his performances in a number of Gilbert and Sullivan operas. His younger brother Weedon trained as an artist and worked as a portrait painter before turning his hand to acting and playwriting. The brothers shared a gift for comedy and from 1888 to 1889 they collaborated on a series of brilliantly observed columns in
Punch magazine featuring the diary of an impossibly pompous lower-middle-class bank clerk named Charles Pooter.
The Diary of a Nobody went on to be published in book form in 1892 and it has been in print ever since.
