Norman Pilbeam has retired. He loves Shakespeare, but his quotes often fall on deaf ears as he struggles to keep up to date with the world around him. Arguably, this is not helped by the presence of his formidable wife.
The Last Legs of Norman Pilbeam: The Diary of Yesterday’s Man is, as the title suggests, written in diary style, following Pilbeam for a year. It’s a gentle comedy that is easy to pick up and read.
Rating (out of 5): ****
