Please be gentle, this is my first release.
Although unpublished this is the original version of the late Mr Stanshall's magnum opus that would later be reworked as the film. It is the story of a deranged English squire and his manor house full of grotesques of League of Gentlemen dimensions.
Viv Stanshall's exquisite wordsmithery and sharp wit evoke both awe and uncontrollable laughter of underwear moistening proportions and the rich density of the descriptions and narrative will bring you, dear listener, back time and again to find nuances and meanings that eluded you first time. An undeniable work of genius from the finest hour of this sadly missed English gentleman.
Indispensible ... Now read on dot dot dot.
