I stumbled across a paperback copy of Joseph Andrews by Henry Fielding ( of Tom Jones fame) for 30p in a local charity shop the other day, so I snapped it up.
I haven't read it as yet ( having just finished 'Three Men in a Boat' by Jerome K. Jerome ( brilliant!) and just started the latest and last Harry Potter) but I do have very dim recollections of seeing the Tony Richardson film version on TV once, at an age when I probably shouldn't have.
I am hoping the book will be full of bawdy wit, farcical confusion and ribald misadventure
( otherwise I'm taking it back!).
Here's a cover I've recreated ( based on those selfsame dim recollections).
