Charles Pooter cannot understand why he shouldn't publish his diary, even though he does not happen to be a 'somebody', he wonders why his diary shouldn't be interesting? A classic character from 1892, Charles is anxious, accident prone and occasionally waspish. His diary chronicles his encounters with difficult tradesmen, the delights of home improvements, small parties, minor embarassments and problems with his troublesome son. The suburban world he inhabits is hilariously and painfully familiar in its small-mindedness and essential decency. George and Weedon Grossmith's The Diary of a Nobody created a cultural icon and an English archetype that has often been imitated, but never bettered.
