Top 40 Book Club : Top 40 Book Club Reads 2016
BOOK CLUB READS Top 40 2016 11 FICTION FICTION Undermajordomo Minor Patrick deWitt Lucien (Lucy) Minor of Bury is many things. A compulsive liar, pretentious, aimless, something of a weakling, and cer tainly not hero material. All of that changes after a mysterious stranger in a burlap sack saves Lucy’s life while he is on his deathbed, and his boring uneventful life is turned upside down. With a promise of ‘something to happen’, Lucy leaves his home in Bury to work at the remote castle of Baron Von Aux. From there, he is thrown into intrigue upon intrigue, falls violently in love, and becomes witness to murder, mystery, heartbreak and nearly every conceivable aspect of human behaviour. A blackly funny not-quite-fairy tale for grown-ups, Undermajordomo Minor is a delightfully irreverent tale with clever and satisfying twists.
