The diary of a nobody. by Grossmith, George, 1847-1912; Grossmith, Weedon, 1852-1919, joint author; Findon, Benjamin William, 1859-1943.
The Diary of a Nobody is an English comic novel written by the brothers George and Weedon Grossmith. It originated as an intermittent serial in Punch magazine in 1888–89 and first appeared in book form, with extended text and added illustrations, in 1892. The Diary records the daily events in the lives of a London clerk, Charles Pooter, his wife Carrie, his son Lupin, and numerous friends and acquaintances over a period of 15 months. This is a really funny book, and one of my personal favourites.
The authors were brothers, George and Weedon Grossmith. George was probably the main writer and his brother Weedon drew the illustrations. The content, however, is very probably a 'joint effort', for it satirises many Victorian attitudes and values and since both men had careers in the performing arts, it is entirely probable that they collaborated on the creation of the hapless Charles Pooter and his family.
WEEDON GROSSMITH, brother of George, was born in 1854. He was educated at the Slade and the Royal Academy with a view to following a career as a painter, and exhibited at the Grosvenor Gallery and at the Royal Academy. Joining a theatrical company in 1885, he toured the provinces and America, specializing in the representation of characters of the ‘Mr Pooter’ type. The Diary of a Nobody first appeared not in book form but in Punch magazine as a two-and-a-half column sketch on 26 May 1888. It then featured in twelve of the following sixteen issues and after the 15 September entry there was a break for two months.

There isalways something to be done: a tin-tack here, a Venetian blind to putstraight, a fan to nail up, or part of a carpet to nail down-all of whichI can do with my pipe in my mouth; while Carrie is not above putting abutton on a shirt, mending a pillow-case, or practising the SylviaGavotte on our new cottage piano (on.
Grossmith’s comic novel unveils the daily chronicles of the pompous and clumsy middle-aged clerk Charles Pooter, who has just moved to the London suburb of Holloway with his wife Carrie. First appearing in Punch magazine through the years 1888-89, The Diary of a Nobody was first published in book form in 1892 and has entertained readers ever since. Written as diary entries, the novel records the daily mishaps and follows the humiliations of the Pooter family. Life in the Pooter household consists of busy interactions, endless renovations and mundane chores, giving the impression of an ordinary functioning family. However, it is this simplicity that ignites humor as the scenarios are played out.
