Frank Muir S First Novel Features The Bizarre Members Of A Gentlemen S Club In His Capacity As Secretary Of The Walpole Club In St James S, William Grundwick Is Duty Bound To Arrange Whatever Function The Events Committee Decides Is Appropriate To Celebrate The Club S Th Anniversary Frank Muir was brilliantly funny on his My Word radio programe and this same humour comes across in his book about an English mens Club celebrating their 250yr history with an orgy code named an Orange Probably one of the most pleasurable books I have ever read for gentle English humour, ease of reading and charm I also have it as an audiobook read by Frank Muir himself, complete with bow tie I am sure, and this adds another level to the story and to the enjoyment of it I would recommend highly to anyone who likes a quiet chuckle from an excellent wordsmith.

Really funny Didn t think I would like modern English humor Frank Muir is great Witty and erudite as you d expect from Muir First novel I ve ever read by him I wasn t disappointed. This rating hasto do me not liking farces rather than being a criticism of the book Frank Muir writes well but I found the subject matter to be puerile and tedious It took me ages to read, despite it not being a long book, because I just didn t feel like going back to it It was a book club choice, otherwise I would never have stuck with it.
