Autorentext
David Nobbs was born in Kent. After university, he entered the army, then tried his hand at journalism and advertising before becoming a writer. A distinguished novelist and comedy writer best known for The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin, David Nobbs was acknowledged by his peers as a comic genius. He died in August 2015.

Klappentext

The Complete Pratt compiles the first three volumes of the misadventures of Henry Pratt, beginning with a brilliantly funny evocation of a Yorkshire boyhood. As he matures from schoolboy to gawky teenager, the unathletic and over-imaginative Pratt proves he can stick up for himself with the stoic good nature and passive courage of the great British underdog.

Older but still prone to accidents, Henry's first story as a cub reporter on the Thurmarsh Evening Argus, about a stolen colander, is not quite a straightforward as he hopes. So when the scoop of a lifetime finally comes his way it threatens to upset the family and complicate his ever-hopeful love life.

From there Henry decides to take on a new role and a new challenge - working for the Cucumber Marketing Board in Leeds. Stumbling through the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties, he accumulates jobs, marriages and children on the way as he embarks on a touching, painful and hilarious switchback ride through a divided Britain.

'A rich and loveable book' Sunday Times

'The most wonderful book I have read for a long long time' Miles Kington

'Very funny sketches of provincial newspaper life' Sue Townsend

'David Nobbs ... has evoked a recently vanished world with wit and generosity' Independent
