商品の説明

内容紹介

A humorous novel that crosses the boundaries between literary fiction, philosophy and plain silliness.

A mermaid turns up in your bath, without explanation or warning--what do you do? It's almost as disruptive as the search for Truth or (worse) finding it. To complicate matters further, Lionel falls in love with her just before she disappears into the clutches of the evil Dr Squidtentacles.

Lionel's efforts to rescue her are aided by his friend Captain Kipper, the Higgs Bosun and the lovely Lola 'Hotstuff' Tabasco, and complicated by international hallucinogenic chilli dealer Ramón Pimiento el Picante.

This is a ripping yarn with some very slow car chases involving a Morris Minor and a slow ping-pong duel Matrix-style, not to mention (but I will anyway) a Greek chorus of Cornish villagers, an atomic submarine and a description of St Doris Island and what took place there in the reign of Queen Elizabeth I.

Between chapters of adventure not a lot more absurd than real life are philosophical ponderings by Professor Neville Twistytrouser of St Doris College, Oxford together with testy rebuttals by Professor Alphonse Pince-Nez of the department of Saltimbanques de Mer at the Sorbonne, plus the fully justified complaints of Milton Marmalade's exotic Welsh secretary, Myfanwy.

Destined to become a cult classic.

Milton Marmalade--'An idiot at the height of his powers.'

レビュー

Reviews from Wattpad.com readers around the world Laughing hard-mission accomplished xD.-Ana Ribeiro, Portugal I think it is all allegory for deeper journeys within the psyche and the self, the search for identity, love and spiritual awakening.-Takatsu, Toronto, Canada, author of Espresso Love, Of Forests and Clocks and Dreams, and Secondhand Memories. This is one of my favourite stories on Wattpad! It's original, witty, and it really has a sense of its own style. I love how vividly it portrays Cornwall as well as all its colourful characters! Myfanwy is an absolute dear and adding her notes at the end of each chapter was a stoke of genius.-Rose Wick, Scotland Response to chapter 2: Love this and especially the line, "But you don't smoke" and all that follows. And the whole Quantum and Schrodinger's cat paradox... -Mary L. Tabor, author of The Woman who Never Cooked and (Re)making Love. What do you call a potpourri of humour, good prose, excellent story arc and relatable characters? A Mermaid in the Bath. This book manages to impart some morals which we could benefit from and all this without being preachy. I liked the crisp tone the story is written in. The chorus, the comic relief, the layered characters-well done.-Shrijana Subba, India, author of Bottle Green Daffodil. ...like Roald Dahl for grownups-Jennifer Cooreman, Colorado, USA, winner of the @MargaretAtwood #Freeze-DriedFiction contest for Sister of the Bride. Enchanted already-John M. Gilheany, UK, author of Not a Stone Left Unturned, Library Dandaical and other works. Undignified squeal-I love this book! I can't wait to get my hands on a copy.-Austin Malcome, USA"
