Getting Back Brahms
Purchase Title ›
Diana, thirty-something bookshop owner, is single again but no longer able to listen to Brahms without stirring painful memories of her old love. Determined to make new memories, she joins the Academy of Forward Literature at Hassocks Hall.
‘Getting Back Brahms is a brilliant and topical comedy of errors by one of our most gifted comic writers.’
‘Whether or not creative writing can be taught, there’s good comic milage in the attempt to do so. Mavis Cheek exploits it to the full in her story of Hassocks Hall, a literary folly on the grand scale…A painful, funny account of heartbreak.’ Mail on Sunday
‘With her usual flair and biting wit Mavis Cheek pokes fun at a whole range of British institutions.’
