The Diary of a Nobody

The Diary of a Nobody


'I fail to see - because I do not happen to be a "Somebody" - why my diary should be not be interesting'

Mr Pooter is a man of modest ambition, content with his clerkly lot. So why is he always in trouble with disagreeable tradesmen, impudent young clerks and wayward friends? And what is he to do about his son Lupin's distinctly unsuitable choice of bride? However hard he tries, life piles its little mishaps on his head - but he's not about to give up.
