Om författaren

David Nobbs was born in Petts Wood, England on March 13, 1935. He graduated from St John's, Cambridge, where he studied English in 1958. He joined the Sheffield Star as an apprentice journalist, but soon realized it was not the type of writing we wanted to do. He moved to London when one of his visa mer sketches was accepted for a revue, One to Another, at the Lyric theatre. In the 1960s, he became established as a gag writer for popular performers of the day including David Frost and Frankie Howerd. His first novel, The Itinerant Lodger, was published in 1965. His other novels included Ostrich Country, A Piece of the Sky Is Missing, The Death of Reginald Perrin, The Return of Reginald Perrin, A Bit of a Do, Cupid's Darts, and The Second Life of Sally Mottram. His Reginald Perrin novels were later adapted for television as The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, which ran between 1976 and 1979. He also wrote a memoir entitled I Didn't Get Where I Am Today. He died on August 9, 2015 at the age of 80. (Bowker Author Biography) visa färre

Recensioner

Very much a book of it's time, entertaining in parts, cheesy in parts but certainly quite sexist and a little bit racist by modern standards.

Inspiradora de una de las comedias televisivas más famosas de todos los tiempos, Caída y auge de Reginald Perrin es una obra maestra del género humorístico en el ámbito anglosajón. Su protagonista, Reginald Perrin, es un hombre gris; un mediocre e infeliz ejecutivo de ventas cuarentón, que malgasta sus días en la empresa Postres Lucisol, sometido a un jefe estúpido para el que desempeña un trabajo alienante, mientras lleva una vida suburbana al lado de su esposa y una familia plagada de gorrones. Hasta que un día, entregado a continuas fantasías que le apartan momentáneamente del sopor, decide tirarlo todo por la borda y dar el gran paso: desaparecer sin dejar el menor rastro, simular su propio suicidio, y adoptar una segunda identidad para volver a comenzar desde cero.… (mer)
