Read in January, 1977

It's been quite some time since I lined up at the bookstore counter to meet Mr Milligan and have my copy of Puckoon signed. This book will forever hold a tender to my heart. It made me laugh out loud, miss my bus stop when travelling home and saw me buy copies for my friends. It took Milligan 2 years to write this, no doubt while he was in the thrrawl of th Q Series. As one of the greatest comedic talents of the last century it is clear that he had lots of fun writing this one down. He has written his bio, several revisions on the great classics and lots of children's stories and verse. The only serious work was a play "The Bedsitting Room".
As this is his only true novel. Believe me it is hard to write funny and there are few examples (Lennie Lower is one).
From the man who created a whole new measure of radio media this book deserves to be read.
