9780099554196: Therapy

A successful sitcom writer with plenty of money, a stable marriage, a platonic mistress and a flash car, Laurence ‘Tubby’ Passmore has more reason than most to be happy. Yet neither physiotherapy nor aromatherapy, cognitive behaviour therapy or acupuncture can cure his puzzling knee pain or his equally inexplicable mid-life angst.

As Tubby’s life fragments under the weight of his self-obsession, he embarks on a picaresque quest for his lost contentment.

From the Hardcover edition.

From AudioFile:

Lawrence Passmore is a writer whose TV sitcom has become a popular success in England. He is married, a father, lives in a grand house in a swank suburb, and he seeks every flavor of therapy from aroma to massage to psycho. Stephen Thorne's sustained intensity makes the written situations, which are already funny, into hilarious moments. He never takes a stab at trying to be funny--nor does he wait after delivery for the listener to "get it." The story runs on like life--without an announcement of what is funny or not. Little rises of inflection add to the humor of his matter-of-fact way of reading. The protagonist is recognizably human as he runs from aromatherapy to acupuncture with the need to find the cure for his ills. Reading the book was a delight, and hearing it doubled the pleasure. J.P. An AUDIOFILE Earphones Award Winner. (c)AudioFile, Portland, Maine
