The Windelton Absurdities

By D. A. Adamson

Comedy & satire, Crime & mystery, Historical fiction | eBook


Windelton, England’s most absurd town! A sleepy, northern outpost becomes the focus of the world’s media following a chain of outrageous events. An eccentric bank manager, believing all the money in the bank is rightfully his, steals the fortune of a philanthropic heiress and plans his escape to South America with a past love. “Well written, darkly funny comic debut” “Full of very British, witty charm” A colourful thread of inhabitants weaves its way through the narrative – a fading Edwardian aristocrat’s family; an outwardly drab secretary with a taste for illicit pleasures; a boozy vicar whose unorthodox ministry mesmerises parishioners and a clairvoyant with a gift of ‘seeing’ that is uncannily half-correct. The Windelton Absurdities is a rollicking good read, packed with passion and human drama in a parody of small town life in 1960s Britain. Secrets, jealousies and outrageous behaviour spill out of its pages from start to finish. Prepare to laugh out loud until the tragi-comedic events reach their fateful conclusion.
