The Fall And Rise Of Reginald Perrin

(Reginald Perrin)

Summary

From the bestselling author of Going Gently and the hugely successful autobiography I Didn't Get Where I Am Today.

Reginald Iolanthe Perrin is sick to death with selling exotic ices at Sunshine Desserts. He's fed up with his boss C.J. who delights in making his life hell. And he's had enough of his eager young assistants who think everything is 'super'.
