Lynne Truss debuted in America as a guffaw-inducing grammarian, but her UK audience has known her for years as a critically acclaimed novelist. Tennyson's Gift is an imaginative cocktail of Victorian seriousness and farce that re-imagines the world of the nineteenth-century English poet laureate, placing him in the midst of eccentric company that includes Lewis Carroll. Going Loco features a critic trying to write a definitive account of the doppelganger in gothic fiction, amidst the chaos of her domestic life, including paranoia that her cleaning lady is taking over her life. These two works will delight the hordes of Truss fans who made Eats, Shoots & Leaves such a spectacular bestseller.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Amusing…Going Loco is a great pleasure to listen to…Truss focuses more closely on human idiosyncrasies, turns her phrases more deftly, and portrays dialogue richly, giving narrator Belinda Lang a lot to work with. She does, pounding away at heavy Swedish accents and casual English idiocy with zest.” AudioFile
