Laughter on The Stairs
Laughter on the Stairs
Portland: Timber Press, Inc., 1998.
First printing thus.
This is a re-issue of the first edition, which was published in 1953 in the UK, with delightful jacket and line illustrations by William McLaren, in the style of Rex Whistler.
Nichols writes in the tradition of P. G. Wodehouse or E. F. Benson, where small details of sleepy, English village life assume enormous importance and comic potential.
