Overview for Book Of Humour
A delectable offering from a writer who not only knows how to make us laugh but also knows how to laugh at himself. Playful tigers, ghosts, elephants, crows and old favourites like Uncle Ken, Miss Bun, the author’s slightly eccentric grandfather and Bond himself weave in and out of the pages of this wildly eclectic, thoroughly delightful and absolutely irresistible anthology featuring previously unpublished pieces like Respect Your Breakfast’ and Uncle Ken Goes to Sea as well as beloved classics from Bond’s books. Marked by the signature charm and subtle wit of one of India’s best-loved writers, Ruskin Bond’s Book of Humour, will make even the hardened among us crack a smile.
