Inhaltsangabe: My dear wife Carrie and I have just been a week in our new house, ?The Laurels,? Brickfield Terrace, Holloway?a nice six-roomed residence, not counting basement, with a front breakfast-parlour. We have a little front garden; and there is a flight of ten steps up to the front door, which, by-the-by, we keep locked with the chain up. Cummings, Gowing, and our other intimate friends always come to the little side entrance, which saves the servant the trouble of going up to the front door, thereby taking her from her work. We have a nice little back garden which runs down to the railway. We were rather afraid of the noise of the trains at first, but the landlord said we should not notice them after a bit, and took £2 off the rent. He was certainly right; and beyond the cracking of the garden wall at the bottom, we have suffered no inconvenience.
Inhaltsangabe: Charles Pooter, a lower middle-class clerk and the 'Nobody' of the title, believes that his rather ordinary life is just as interesting as those of 'Somebodies' and that the reading public would be fascinated by his diary. Self-important, socially inept and gaffe-prone, his chronicle of the daily lives of himself and his family (his wife, Carrie, his son, Lupin, and Lupin's highly unsuitable fiancee, Daisy Mutlar) is an hilarious series of small disasters. George & Weedon Grossmith captured the essence of the small man with big delusions so accurately that 'Pooterism' has entered the language as a term for someone with a tendency to take themselves rather too seriously.

In this book, the reader is transported to a late-Victorian family house in the suburbes of Holloway, London where Charles Pooter can be found, comic symbol of everyman struggling to maintain his dignity in the face of incessant petty frustrations and of his belief that his position in life is somehow unalterable. It is at the same time one of the funniest books and the most realistic portrayal of life both as it was and is. Buchnummer des Verkäufers 15947
