I really wish I had read this before reading Alexander McCall Smith's collected newspaper serials as this (and apparently other 1970s serials) are pretty much the template for that sort of thing: wacky archetypes in the city where the newspaper running the serial is located. Of course this book is groundbreaking, but the problem with us reading it now is that ground's been broken for almost 40 years.
