9780140051582: The better world of Reginald Perrin

Reginald Iolanthe Perrin, the creation of comedy genius David Nobbs, is surely one of the best-loved comedy heroes of our time ' in both literature and television. So it is with great pride that Audible presents Reggie's escapades in digital audio for the very first time: we invite you to join him, and the memorable supporting characters who help him along the way, on one man's quest to avoid an everyday existence. This hilarious episode in the remarkable exploits of Reginald Perrin follows our hero on his most ambitious venture yet.

Setting up a commune strictly for the middle-class and middle-aged, Reggie's therapy centre nurtures its clients, encouraging them to find the love and goodness that lurks deep inside. And he's gathered together the unlikeliest of staff to help him- including C.J. (for people's work problems), David Harris-Jones (handling their sex problems), plus Tony Webster (culture), his son-in-law Tom (sport) and Doc Morrissey (psychology). With a team like this, how can the indomitable, unconventional R.I.P. ever fail in his bid to create a Better World?

Having graduated from Cambridge University, David Nobbs entered the army, then tried his hand at journalism and advertising before becoming a writer. A distinguished novelist and comedy writer, Nobbs has written for hit TV comedy shows including The Two Ronnies and created the TV sitcom, The Rise and Fall of Reginald Perrin, adapted from his own Reginald Perrin comedy novels. He lives near Harrogate with his wife Susan.
