The Life and Times of Algernon Swift

194 printed pages

Young and earnest, Algernon Swift is perplexed by life and all the ambiguities that language throw at him. By contrast, his elderly uncle, Reverend Hawker, revels in them.

Through a series of original hand-drawn illustrations, we follow Algernon as he navigates the troubles of life, love and language. Eventually, Algernon learns to feel joy amidst all the confusion. Wickedly clever and original, The Life and Times of Algernon Swift contains some of the best – or indeed worst – puns and jokes you will ever read.
