Diary Of A Nobody

George Grossmith Grossmith,

Diary Of A Nobody

The Diary of a Nobody is a nineteenth-century comic novel co-written by the two English brothers George and Weedon Grossmith. The volume also includes illustrations by the latter author. Being first published in the magazine Punch before taking the present form, The Diary of a Nobody is considered today as a brilliant humor classic of the English tongue. The narrative purports to be the personal records of Mr. Charles Pooter, a middle-aged man with social and professional aspirations who lives in the suburbs of Upper Holloway. The most comic moments of the story often describe Pooter’s interaction with the other characters in the novel, mainly his spiritualist wife Carrie, his naughty son Lupin as well as his ever-mocking friends and the people in the neighborhood with whom he often engages in hilarious discussions. Despite the hardships that he has to go through along with the miserable conditions in the neighborhood, Pooter manages to maintain his good temper and his sense of humor. The book generally provides English readers with a very familiar painting of suburban life and the customs and manners of the middle-class.
