A play on words

£14.99

Product description

Further episodes in the life of Deric Longden and the Longden household. At least two new characters join the feline cast led by the ever-popular Thermal. The thread running through the book is the interesting experience of watching Lost for Words turn into a television drama, but attached to the thread are the usual wonderful collection of Longden observations of life at home and (not too far) abroad. As usual work suffers constant interruptions from Thermal & Co, but somehow the research gets done. Did you know that Huddersfield has the country's biggest per capita consumption of crinkle-cut chips? And why does two-thirds of all the Benedictine produced get drunk in Bradford?
Very good condition. Signed by author.
