First meet young Lockhart Flawse from Flawse Hall on Flawse Fell. Then hear his story of gassing, whipping, blowing up, killing and stuffing - in fact, the everyday tale of a wild child of nature plunged into the genteel mock-Tudor world of surburban Surrey.

Product Description:

Lockheart Flawse exposes the suburban foibles of his tennants in Sandicott Close. Terrified out of their wits, one by one they beat a hasty retreat and Lockheart's dream of escaping hated East Pursley, and his 12 rent-controlled houses comes a step closer.


"[A] romp about one of nature's gentlemen making his innocent and ruthless way through the jungle of contemporary sex, VAT, law and order, etc. - savage, knock-about farce" ( Observer)

"Black humour, comic anarchy at its best" ( Sunday Times)

"All done with a savage delight which will have you laughing out loud" ( Daily Mirror)

"He is funny, bitter, a danger to his public and should be applauded wildly by all" ( The Listener)

"His tale of an illegitimate member of the squirearchy earning his inheritance by increasingly nasty methods is both inventive and pacy" ( New Statesman)
