Lessons in Humiliation

by

Henry Robson is suffering. He is a balding, failing actor living all alone in rural Dorset. When two choices present themselves, he inadvisedly selects both… Initially, a torrid affair seems to tick all the boxes, but any happiness derived from the liaison soon unravels when Henry, untrained as a teacher, accepts employment at a school run by a madman. Finding himself surrounded by specialists in humiliation – professional, public and private – will he learn his lesson? Follow the adventures and misadventures of this lovable but hapless rogue, a man all the more endearing for his weaknesses. Laugh as slapstick jostles for supremacy with the surreal, and cry twice over at moments of utter poignancy. An Aga-saga for men (and for women wishing to know what men are really thinking), Lessons in Humiliation falls headlong towards a most unexpected dénouement. Fans of humorous fiction will find themselves crying both with laughter and out of sympathy for the plight of the narrator.

A simple, useful guide. J an a writer and have more than the basic level of understanding but this book still had helpful and insightful tips that I have picked up and used. I would recommend this book to anyone looking for an entry level text on the subject.
