Lynne Truss debuted in America as a guffaw-inducing grammarian, but her UK audience has known her for years as a critically acclaimed novelist. Tennyson's Gift is an imaginative cocktail of Victorian seriousness and farce that re-imagines the world of the nineteenth-century English poet laureate, placing him in the midst of eccentric company that includes Lewis Carroll. Going Loco features a critic trying to write a definitive account of the doppelganger in gothic fiction, amidst the chaos of her domestic life, including paranoia that her cleaning lady is taking over her life. These two works will delight the hordes of Truss fans who made Eats, Shoots & Leaves such a spectacular bestseller.

About the Author:

Lynne Truss is the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Eats, Shoots & Leaves, which has sold nearly one million copies and won Book of the Year at the British Book Awards. A novelist and journalist, Truss is also the author of numerous radio comedy dramas. She lives in Brighton, England.

From AudioFile:

These two early novels by the author of EATS, SHOOTS AND LEAVES are both amusing. However, while Timothy West's delivery of TENNYSON'S GIFT is in all ways professional, neither he nor the author captures the sound of nineteenth-century Britain. West is clear but not dramatic; furthermore, Truss writes a bit abstractly in this earlier novel. By contrast, GOING LOCO is a great pleasure to listen to. Author Truss focuses more closely on human idiosyncrasies, turns her phrases more deftly, and portrays dialogue richly, giving narrator Belinda Lang a lot to work with. She does, pounding away at heavy Swedish accents and casual English idiocy with zest. G.T.B. © AudioFile 2006, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
