The Clumsiest People in Europe
Mrs. Mortimer (with Todd Pruzan)
The Clumsiest People in Europe.
New York: Bloomsbury, 2005.
Todd Pruzan has combined three forgotten classics, reviving the comically misinformed and startling prejudices of a uniquely Victorian eccentric.
Mrs. Mortimer, who only travelled twice outside England, does not let that stop her from vilifying every race upon earth as dishonest, dirty or drunk, not to mention lazy, wicked and unkempt.
The result is pure poetry and should be read aloud at mealtimes to encourage pig ignorance.
