Bleak Expectations

Based on a UK radio show, Bleak Expectations recounts the remarkable adventures of young Pip Bin as he tries to make his way in a world made all horrible by the machinations of his cruel guardian, Mr Gently Benevolent. Grim circumstances, mistaken identities, nightmarish court-cases, ridiculous names, convenient coincidences to resolve plot problems, over-sentimental death scenes and lots and lots of adjectives: Bleak Expectations is a novel like Charles Dickens might have written after far too much gin.

A brilliant Dickens pastiche. * The Telegraph * Deliciously irreverent spoof of all things Victorian and melodramatic....Evans keeps the gag rate high. * The Observer * The funniest book since the one I haven't written yet. Mark Evans sets the bar annoyingly high. -- Robert Webb
