Chris:

What was the book you mentioned? I wrote it down, but I can't find it now. It was a very funny book that Pterry found very funny, and I don't even remember the rest of the context. Do you remember?

Thanks for any help!

Don't buy the US print, it misses out the chapters on sex

On the BBC's "With great pleasure" quite a while back pTerry had a extract of Specialist read. I was reminded of this at the Sailisbury Hisworld exhibition recently where it was on prominent display along with other books that were in his office library if you want any other suggestions.

Originally published as "What We Did To Father", I think.
My next project is a book in which I explore the influence of the music of Beyonce on the writings of J R R Tolkien. It's called "It you write it, you have to put a ring in it"
