Journal Of A Coffin Dodger

(1979)
A novel by

 
 
Walter Sherlock is 84 years old and tired of living with his boring son, Neville, pillar of the Conservative Club, and Neville's obese wife, Marge, maker of eternal Spotted Dicks.
He wants to play loud music and live the life of a bachelor playboy so he rents himself a flat in town, invests in some new hair and sets about finding a lady friend seeking 'similar interests'..
Unfortunately, things don't work out so well. On almost his first outing, led on by his Marxist grand-daughter, Natalie, and her black boyfiriend, Harold Wilson, he ends up in the Otis Redding Memorial Hospital after a fracas at a miners' demo.
He causes havoc at the Conservative Club whist drive, hardly a venue for loose women, but he meets his match when he signs up for a computer dating agency.
This hilarious account of the adventures of an elderly roue takes its place alongside such classics of English humour as Adrian Mole and Bridget Jones.
