    Hi Jonathan,

    I enjoyed yesterday’s article and it struck a chord on many levels as i’ve just published a comic novel of my own so i know just how difficult they are to pull off – even with the advance in the bank and steady if unspectacular sales on Amazon, i’m not sure if i have.

    By a strange coincidence i was speaking to a reader’s group in Lichfield yesterday and one of the audience commented that he saw elements of ‘Lucky Jim’ in my book, which was very flattering although it caused a me a few ‘mouth flapping’ moments as it must be twenty years since i read it.

    I’m sure that you are far too busy to take a look at my work but if you do find time it might convince you that the ‘comic novel’ can come off ‘life support’ perhaps not too far off life support, maybe just a downgrade to the high dependency ward.
