'Why should I not publish my diary? I have often seen reminiscences of people I have never even heard of, and I fail to see - because I do not happen to be a 'Somebody' - why my diary should not be interesting' CHARLES POOTER Mr Charles Pooter is a respectable man. He has just moved into a very desirable home in Holloway with his dear wife Carrie, from where he commutes to his job of valued clerk at a reputable bank in the City. Unfortunately neither his friends Mr Cummings and Mr Gowing, nor the butcher or the greengrocer's boy seem to recognise Mr Pooter's innate gentility and his disappointing son Lupin has gone and got himself involved with a most unsuitable fiancée.
