"Rita fell down the stairs at twenty-two minutes past midnight." Robin Cooper turns his hand to diary writing in this hilarious new novel. All the absurdity, bad luck. and boundless optimism of his previous books are here, as we discover the man behind the letters. The year starts badly for Robin, losing his job for sending so many letters in work time, and for his wife Rita, who sprains her ankle yet again. But Robin has a cunning plan—his marrying of the crossword and sudoku into his devilish "crossoku", which might just make their fortune. This is a hilarious and strangely heartwarming story of a great British comic character. Abridged.

About the Author:

Robin Cooper is the award-winning Robert Popper, star of BBC TV's Look Around You and the author of The Timewaster Letters and Return of the Timewaster Letters.

Review:

"Whitehouse is a good choice of narrator. He gets right into character with the adoption of suitably nerdy tones. His slight pauses and barely audible mispronunciations further bring Cooper to life."  —Financial Times
