Clerical Errors - Alan Isler ... doesn't believe in God. And that's not all. For the past forty years he has shared a bed with his housekeeper, Maude Moriarty from Donegal. In fact Edmond Music isn't even Edmond Music. He's Edmond Music, French child of Hungarian parents - and a Jew. As he sees out his days in his Shropshire mansion, devoting his time to kabbalistic studies, his buried pasts threaten to end the charade. Fred Twombly, professor of English from Joliet, Illinois, and half-century-long enemy, has arrived, determined to destroy him.

It’s high time I wrote another oppie for the DLS (Dooyoo Literary Supplement). The reason I haven’t done so for a while is not that I haven’t read anything, I have, but nothing I wanted to review. I was sure I’d write on Stephen Fry’s The Stars’ Tennis Balls, I had looked so forward to this book, but I was disappointed and when I learnt that it’s a rewrite of The Count of Monte Christo even more so.
