9780007488872: The Fall and Rise of Gordon Coppinger

The much-anticipated latest novel from David Nobbs is the spiritual follow-up to The Fall and Rise of Reginald Perrin and is as witty as it is prescient.When revelations about the scandalous relationships and less than honest business practices of Sir Gordon Coppinger - infamous financier and devotee of excess - are made public, the glamorous facade of his London life begins to crumble and those around him fear the worst.But, much to Sir Gordon's surprise, all he can feel is relief.In this brilliant and funny examination of modern British values, where success is governed by the principles of wealth and celebrity and driven by the insatiable desire to attain more and more, we meet the perfect anti-hero: Gordon Coppinger, a man going quietly sane.
