Harry Cocque That's Reet Boy!

by Colin Baines

Harry Cocque That's Reet Boy! Synopsis

A funny little book containing the hilarious recollections of Harry Cocque, a very old gentleman currently residing in the Piddlewell Moorhen Rest Home for the faintly bewildered (but non-violent). Set in a peculiar Dorset village in the 1930s, this collection of short stories features characters ranging from the mildly eccentric to the downright ludicrous, and reminds us of the days of harvest festivals, farming accidents, thieving tinkers, steam fairs, barn dances, bizarre traditions, country weddings and heavy drinking. Packed with absurd mishaps and outrageous double entendres, this book may well make you laugh out loud and wish you'd been there to see it all for yourself - at a safe distance...
