In this riotously funny comedy Dr. Grimsdyke's genius for disaster is given full reign. He falls in love with a model, only to find she is already married. His much-anticipated cruise is an unmitigated disaster and his role as Sir Lancelot's biographer leads them both into misadventure in the extreme. And then there is the hypochondriac, the Bishop of Wincanton, the murder specialist Dr Mcfiggie, not to mention the most alarming girl from Paris. With such potential pitfalls, it is not surprising that Grimsdyke and Sir Lancelot avoid imprisonment by only the narrowest of margins.
Richard Gordon is best known for his novels, particularly, Doctor in the House. He is a qualified doctor but left medical practice in 1952 to take up writing full time. Many of his books are based on his experiences in the medical profession and are told with wit and humour
