The Diary of a Nobody by George & Weedon Grossmith

Mr Charles Pooter is a well-meaning city clerk and one of a growing number of upwardly mobile, lower middle-class suburbanites set on improving their social standing. Aspiring to posterity, he embarks on a diary in which he is actively drawn into petty confrontations, including run-ins with idle tradesmen, insolent office juniors and abusive neighbours; while simultaneously dealing with his wife's heedless indulgence in flights of fashion and the reckless antics of his vagabond son Lupin.

Wonderfully illustrated with Grossmith's line drawings, this very amusing Victorian comedy created in Charles Pooter a cultural icon and English archetype.

Both celebration and critique, Diary of a Nobody has often been imitated, but never duplicated.
