9780143106661: Poet's Pub (Penguin Classics)

Poet's Pub is the classic comic novel by Eric Linklater, set in an English pub. When an Oxford poet named Saturday Keith assumes control of the Pelican Pub, what he desires most is the peace and freedom to craft his poems without being disturbed. To his dismay, however, the local watering hole soon becomes an attraction for various eccentric characters ranging from uncouth rogues to members of academia. Comprised of an entertaining series of vignettes that occur at the Pelican Pub in the fictional Downish, Poet's Pub is a humourous collection of stories by award-winner Eric Linklater. Includes a new introduction by Nancy Pearl.

Review:

"Do you enjoy screwball comedy movies from the 1930s? Then you'll love this novel, a lark in almost a literal sense, flying high above the English countryside, taking in the whole parade of human folly with chirping delight and impartial wisdom. . . If you don't buy this wonderful novel, you'll never know what joys you're missing."--"BookPage " "Best reissue thus far of 2012? Got to be "Poet's Pub." . . Fizzy. Nicely sour."--Dwight Garner
