Description
A warm, Walter Mitty-like first novel by beloved actor, comedian, and writer Michael Palin

Audiences loved him in Monty Python's Flying Circus and movies like A Fish Called Wanda. Now, for the first time, Michael Palin has turned his hand to fiction, with a book that critics adore and readers will love.

Martin Sproale is a mild-mannered assistant postmaster obsessed with Ernest Hemingway. He lives in a small English village where he studies his hero and putters about harmlessly -- until an ambitious outsider is appointed postmaster. Suddenly, the friendly local office is privatized, and Martin's new boss is leading the landmark into the twenty-first century with drastic high-tech changes. Aided by a charmingly eccentric cast of characters, Martin must decide whether to drift along passively, or fight for what he believes in, as his hero would.

Bittersweet and touching, this lighthearted comedy belongs on every bookshelf.
