Since its first publication in 1892, this delightful Victorian comic diary has never been out of print. City clerk Charles Pooter asks: ?Why should I not publish my diary...because I do not happen to be a ?somebody??? He proceeds to catalog all the social clangers he makes unwittingly as he bumbles his way through life, yet sympathy develops for Pooter in the face of it all. The classic ?English Humor? of The Diary of a Nobody is an ideal text for the talents of Martin Jarvis.
