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 denouement. Fans of humorous fiction will find themselves crying both with laughter and out of sympathy for the plight of the narrator.
Father of three and stepfather to three others, Timothy Edward has enjoyed unremarkable careers in bookselling/publishing (studious), illustration (humorous), acting (various) and teaching (inglorious, having no idea how to teach GCSE 'Drama'). Now a consummate non box-ticker, he gardens, writes and rants ineffectually at his wife and family.
