With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed by Lynne Truss

I didn’t like this book.

Valerie Penny's Book Reviews

Lynne Truss was born in England on 31 May 1955.  She is a writer, journalist, and broadcaster.  She started out as a literary editor but got sidetracked. Truss is the author of three novels and numerous radio comedy dramas.   She spent six years as the television critic of The Times in London, followed by four years as a sports columnist for the same newspaper.

ImageLynne Truss also hosted Cutting a Dash which was a popular BBC Radio 4 series about punctuation. She now reviews books for the Sunday Times and is a familiar voice on BBC Radio 4. Truss lives in Brighton, England.  Her best known book is entitled Eats Shoots and Leaves. 

This book, With One Lousy Free Packet of Seed,.is an old-fashioned farce, in the classic tradition, set in relatively modern-day England.  It is meant to be funny but I cannot say I found it very amusing.
