Description

Growing in confidence, but fed up with a lack of progress in bringing communism to Abertump, Horatio Evans decides to declare the town an independent soviet socialist republic. He, as its leader, decides to emulate Karl Marx by creating a reading room behind Jones’ Emporium, (the ironmonger), in which to find inspiration. However, he finds he’s the only one who’s looking for inspiration. The rest of the town seem quite content, thank you. How will he stir up the populace and persuade them to revolt? Horatio enlists the aid of the communist parties of London, Moscow, and East Berlin in his push for revolution. He hides his full intentions from Abertump Town Council under the guise of twinning it with Berlin. A group of six men set off for the German capital in an ancient Austin A35 van to make contact with real communists, but fail to get very far. How Horatio extricates himself from the failed uprising is a stroke of sheer genius.

    “For your sanity and enjoyment, read this book ….. it’s fantastic humour.”

    It may be part fiction but some of these characters actually existed amongst people I have known; the humour is typically Welsh and all the scenarios in their own complete little chapters are brilliant. I could definitely relate to a lot of the situations in this book which is very well written and observed by the narrator. It has a lovely happy ending in the last chapter; I love happy endings. Hope there is more to come
