Descripción Mastersafe Ltd, Storrington, 2013. Paperback. Condición: Mint. First Edition. THE SWEET SHOP DIARIES Walter Jones Mastersafe Ltd, Storrington. 2013 First edition ISBN 9780992753900 168pp Walter Jones is that classic contradiction. A sweetshop proprietor who has a sweetly sour view of life. A children's shop owner who doesn't like kids. A businessman who doesn't very much like customers. Fortunately his curmudgeonly and misanthropic musings make for hilarious and unput-downable reading. Created by real life sweetshop owner and entrepreneur, David Burns, who owns an old fashioned sweetshop on the South Coast remarkably like the one Walter Jones inhabits, The Sweetshop Diaries are an irreverently funny and insightful collection of anecdotes and real life dialogues between the grumpy Walter and his irrepressible and man-obsessed assistant Louise. Like a rainbow assortment of fizzy sweets, the book is designed to be picked up and dipped into when the day is sitting on the shelf and feeling slightly dull. Its beauty lies in the fact that you don't need to read it from the beginning - it makes complete sense in the middle or you could even read it backwards. Walter Jones, the main character seems to attract characters equally misanthropic as himself - the vet who hates pets, the magician who can't perform, his father who takes the young Walter to the supermarket on the pretext that it's a safe zoo for clingfilm wrapped animals. Mr Cool who walks leather clad in the the shop from his motorbike to drive Louise into a state of frenzy only to reveal that he is a third world philanthropist dentist with a devoted receptionist girlfriend. Not to mention the unhygienic health inspector and the licentious old ladies from Eastbourne. Ref I5 Size: 168pp. Nº de ref. del artículo: 009915
