Fat Freddy Armadale:
with Omnibus presents one of the strangest love stories in modern literature.
' She held the key to what I had lost-she was childish, she was charming, and to me it seemed both strange and touching that anyone should find the world so wonderful.' The words are from an autobiographical novel by J. R. Ackerley , Literary Editor of THE LISTENER (1935-1959). The loved one is his own alsatian dog Queenie.
JOE ACKERLEY was a homosexual who hated effeminacy, a strict but inspiring editor and a man much liked and admired by his friends. This dramatised portrait, drawn from his own writing, explores the contradictions of his personality and observes the progress of the curious ' courtship and marriage' that finally brought happiness into his personal life.
