PORTUGUESE IRREGULAR VERBS

ALEXANDER MCCALL SMITH    Book Number: 86907    Product format: Paperback

One of the brilliant light-footed comic novels from the author of the No.1 Ladies' Detective Agency. Welcome to the insane and rarefied world of Professor Dr Moritz-Maria von Igelfeld of the Institute of Romance Philology. He is engaged in a never-ending quest to win the respect he feels certain he is due, a quest which has the tendency to go hilariously astray. He learns to play tennis and forces a college chum to enter into a duel that results in a nipped nose. He takes a field trip to Ireland where he becomes acquainted with the rich world of archaic Irishisms, and he develops an aching infatuation with a dentist fatale. Along the way he takes two ill-feted Italian sojourns, the first merely uncomfortable, the second definitely dangerous. A quick easy read which takes the micky out of German academics. 128pp in paperback with line art. Remainder mark.
