Description: Horace Littlefair, resident of the rural English village of Great Much, has decided to make his way to London, accepting a job at an obscure newspaper owned by his great-uncle on the south side of the Thames. Upon arrival in town, and dressed in his grandfather's walking breeches and three-quarter-length tweed coat, Horace is promptly cheated by a cabdriver and spends his first night sleeping on a park bench. Thus begins Horace's adventures in his new surroundings. Inept at reporting, he rambles through the obstacles of his new life, encountering a group of eccentric characters who become his new family in London, and with whom he has some very unusual adventures while he endeavors to get the scoop behind the campaign to save the urban fox.

Sharply funny and clearly drawn, A Stranger in the Earth is a brilliant comic debut from a bright new talent with an acutely observant eye and a warm heart.
