Book Description
As a presenter on Midlands TV`s regional news, Frank is a long way from journalism`s cutting edge, and he knows it. Fifteen years ago, Frank hired gag-writer Cyril to inject some humour into his thoroughly unremarkable reports - of pie-baking contests, local crime and spectacular non-events. Cyril`s gags turned otu to be as pitiful as his CV, but th eworse the hokes have got, the higher Frank`s ratings have climbed. To this co-presenter Julia`s intense annoyance, Frank is now officially `the unfunniest man on god`s earth` and a certified local legend. It`s a strange sort of success, but it seems to work, perhaps because Frank`s ambitions have never extended much beyond his family and home: his wife, Andrea, who makes him feel comfortable in his skin (most of the time); and his daughter, Mo, whose questions bring the world alive. But as Frank reflects on his late father`s legacy and what he in turn will leave behind, one news report of a particularly sad and lonely death catches his eye. Digging further into the past, he uncovers a story of thwarted hopes and a friendship tested with the ultimate request.
