Inhaltsangabe: A comedy drama with genuine pathos, set in the murky backdrop of Canvey Island, London, Poncey Bridge and Marbella: REVIEWS: 'Congratulations on your success. I can see why Gretyl has become so popular ...I'm sure I'll see 'Gretyl' on the screen some time in the future.' Richard Boden (Director/Producer: The IT Crowd, Blackadder Goes Forth, The Life of Riley) 'A funny, well-observed romp of a book - fast-moving, highly comic scenarios are peppered with big characters. And an ogre at the centre of it (not a real ogre, like in Harry Potter, but then there's no such thing as a real ogre - this is such a thing as a real Gretyl, which is scarier). It's fun and funny.' Paul Kerensa (comedian & scriptwriter for TV sitcoms, incl. 'Miranda' and 'Not Going Out'). "'Missing Gretyl' is a rare treat - a brilliantly written comedy novel that's genuinely funny." Mark Stibbe, best-selling, award-winning author. "You know you're onto a good thing when the novel you start is hard to stop! When you look forward to the next time you can pick it up and get a bit more of the story...when you're a bit miffed to find you've got to do stuff like work, eat, feed your children and even go the loo, as it means you have to put the book down...then the novel has done its job. And this novel does its job very well; the characters are endearing, the plot intriguing and the overall result - pleasing. Go read it!" Author, Annie Porthouse FAKE REVIEW: "If you've nothing better to do than ROFL, then go ahead and buy the damn thing. Laughter is for the weak minded." Mona Lott, Head Labotomist. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NOW TO THE STORY. London. Poncey Bridge. Marbella. Are you ready for Gretyl Trollop? Some say she is loud, hairy and obnoxious. Others are less complimentary. Witness the antics of this 'old timer' Gretyl Trollop, her long-suffering husband, Albert, the Soddall family who have 'sod all' and other great characters in this hilarious comedy novel. Married for over fifty years, it's all trouble and strife for the Trollops. They live in a high-rise tower block in London's East End, where there isn't enough room to swing a cat. Gretyl is glued to the TV shopping channels and addicted to car boot sales. Albert finds respite in his allotment and the local bookmakers. They carry on with their separate lives until a mysterious letter threatens to change everything and turn Albert's world upside down. Add to the chaotic mix a removal van, a hitman, a holiday scam and a murderous plan, and you will discover the hilarious and touching world that is, Missing Gretyl. Has Gretyl Trollop finally met her match as she takes on Neil Rochester and his cronies in Poncey Bridge? Can Gretyl play the fraudsters at their own game? Will she survive the murderous attempts of Arti Chokes? Does Albert end up missing Gretyl? Missing Gretyl is a throwback to the golden heyday of British Comedy before the end of the millennium. Slapstick in nature with larger than life characters, get ready for some serious shock and laughter as you delve into the murky world of car boot sales, holiday scams, female 'eye candy' and a hit man. The essence of Missing Gretyl is very British in flavour and inspired by wonderful TV characters like Hyacinth Bucket, Del Trotter, Victor Meldrew and Basil Fawlty. Missing Gretyl is also available as a Kindle eBook through Amazon. You can find out more about the author, Si Page via www.missinggretyl.com.
