Is There Something I Should Know?

I have recently become the slightly terrified owner of an iPad and  have discovered the world of e- books ,  I cannot quite believe the magic. Somehow, I press a button on the amazon web site and the book appears on my iPad  – it can only be some version of the Terry Pratchett  photographic elves.

So, this novel was recommended by a friend as a light, funny read. I know nothing about the author, but the book IS  light and funny and very, very rude  and did that terrible thing of making me laugh out loud in an empty room.

Is There Something I Should Know? by David Best is the full, frank – sometimes hilarious – sometimes downright rude – story of a young and naive school teacher finding his way in the world.
Stephen Trulove knows a lot about books but not much about people. Join him as he lurches from one disastrous liaison to the next with sometimes unfortunate results.
Set in early eighties Manchester the book is both nostalgic and reflective and, at times, silly and opinionated – just like the main character. – so says the amazon write up.
