'It's sweet-sad and hilarious, it will be loved. Plimmer should be applauded.' - "Daily Express". 'a touching and witty snapshot of family life seen through the eyes of an average man. Plimmer's a major new talent in dad lit.' - "Woman magazine". You would think that as an acclaimed writer and comedian, Martin Plimmer would be well able to run a happy household. But with his French au pair cosily tucked away in his son's bedroom and his 12 year-old daughter believing that 'life's a bitch' this is far from the truth. "King of the Castle" is an honest tale of the domestic chaos that filled a year of Martin's life. With his marriage, hair and career slowly disintegrating, you can't help but feel his pain. The art of juggling a house full of cats, nannies, stray children along with a collapsing freelance career is hilariously brought to life. This is one domestic disaster you are guaranteed to enjoy.

Review:

Warmly recommended to anyone on active service with a family unit. -- Andrew Morrod, Daily Mail

From the Publisher:

Based on a year in Martin's own life, when his marriage, career and house are all slowly disintegrating.
In King of the Castle Martin Plimmer takes a sidelook at a year of his life, and itís far from the best year, to give us a glimpse of what life as a father and husband is really like. Forget head of the family and nine-to-five-breadwinner; life is more complicated for a man these days. Up to his ears in expectations and commitment, Martin tries desperately to keep on top and be master of his own house. Lad-lit has just become Dad-lit in this seriously funny memoir of a natural survivor.
