Publisher Description

An english comic novel, The Diary of a Nobody, reproduces the diary entries of one Charles Pooter, a city clerk, his scrapes, his attempts to reach high society, his despair of his son ever finding a decent position, of his friends Cummings and Gowing, and numerous comic adventures and misadventures in the 19th century middle class. The Diary made its initial appearance as an intermittent serial in the satirical weekly magazine Punch. Although its critical and popular success was not evident until the third edition appeared in October 1910. After the First World War the book's popularity continued to grow; regular reprintings and new editions ensured that thereafter the book was never out of print, It has subsequently been hailed by Belloc as "one of the half-dozen immortal achievements of our time" Narrated by Michael Ward.

About the Authors

George Grossmith (1847–1912) and Weedon Grossmith (1852–1919), were brothers whose father was a friend of Henry Irving (whose theater was managed by Bram Stoker), Ellen Terry and her family, and other theatrical people. Both pursued successful theatrical careers. In 1888 The Diary of a Nobody began to appear in Punch, with text by both brothers and illustrations by Weedon. Its popularity with a wide range of readership was immediate, and has not faltered.

Frederick Davidson (1932–2005), also known as David Case, was one of the most prolific readers in the audiobook industry, recording more than eight hundred audiobooks in his lifetime, including over two hundred for Blackstone Audio. Born in London, he trained at the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art and performed for many years in radio plays for the British Broadcasting Company before coming to America in 1976. He received AudioFile’s Golden Voice Award and numerous Earphones Awards and was nominated for a Grammy for his readings.
