A real coup for this blog....

Coming soon to this page.....a real coup; An interview with David Nobbs, one of Britain's leading comic-novelists. Creator of Reginald Perrin, Henry Pratt and so many other memorable characters. David Nobbs’s most famous creation is undoubtedly Reginald Iolanthe Perrin, star of three novels and three television series. Like Reggie himself, the series refuses to die,and was recently revived with Martin Clunes as Reggie. David doesn’t resent this. He didn’t get where he is today by being upset when people mouth his own catch-phrases at him. But there is far more to David’s career than Reggie Perrin. There’s his acclaimed series, A Bit Of A Do, which gained audiences of fourteen million for Yorkshire Television. There’s his work for many top comedians, including Frankie Howerd, Les Dawson and The Two Ronnies.
And above all there are his novels, eighteen of them, all of them humorous in tone, leading Jonathan Coe to state ‘David Nobbs is probably our finest post-war comic novelist.’ They include the four Perrin novels, the four Henry Pratt novels, and two of his own great favourites, Going Gently, Obstacles to Young Love (shortlisted for the Melissa Nathan Award for Comedy Romance) and his eighteenth, It Had To Be You, published on June 23rd, 2011.
You can read about all these books by clicking the link below, plus details of his life, his radio and television work, his influences, his enthusiasms, his prejudices, his occasional public appearances. You can ask him questions – he’ll be pleased to hear from you – and he will write a fairly regular blog with his unique take on the events of the day.
