Independently minded publishing

– John Stanbridge

This is one of the funniest books I have read for a long time. Bernard is exactly what you would expect of a Telegraph reader & investor; and I am smiling, whilst writing, at the thought of Eunice, one of the most sympathetically drawn characters I have come across for a long time. Although intended to be humorous and taken from the column in the Investors Chronicle the characters are very real, and Bernard eventually shows his true humanity!! I hope the more secondary characters like the gay son-in-law & the demonic grandson get fuller coverage in the announced sequel “Bernard Jones & the Temple of Mammon”
