The Brightfount Diaries

(1955)
A novel by

 
In a small provincial city, Peter lives with his long-suffering Aunt Anne and his eccentric Uncle Leo, and works in a bookshop called Brightfount&#146;s, which he describes as a &#145;shabby outpost of literacy&#146;. Cutting the apron strings, he moves into a bed-sit and composes these witty diaries, in which he includes amusing remarks about publishers, authors, booksellers and customers, a revelation about his dotty uncle, and his efforts to find &#145;a suitable girl&#146;.
