A welcome re-issue of Nigel William's modern classic of comic writing.
Nigel Williams is the author of twelve novels - including the best-selling Wimbledon Trilogy. His stage plays includeClass Enemy, still being performed all over the world, and a dramatisation of William Golding's Lord of the Flies recently revived at the Regent's Park Theatre. He also wrote the Emmy and Golden Globe award-winning Elizabeth I, starring Helen Mirren, while his BBC Radio 4 comedy 'HR' , with Jonathan Pryce and Nicholas le Prevost, is now in its fourth series. He has lived in Putney for thirty years.
Nigel Williams's comedy of suburban manners is very, very funny; the writing is sprightly, the caricatures spot on. - The TimesA brilliantly witty writer. - The Sunday TimesA very good read, with a few comic set pieces that are comparable to Wodehouse - New StatesmanI laughed aloud sufficiently often over this book that it was necessary to sit in a room on my own to read it. - The SpectatorThe Wimbledon Poisoner is a marvelously funny book. - Daily Mail
