"The Complete Pratt" compiles the first three volumes of the misadventures of Henry Pratt, beginning with a brilliantly funny evocation of a Yorkshire boyhood in "Second from Last in the Sack Race"; Henry's first job is as a cub reporter on the Thurmarsh Evening Argus, told in "Pratt of the Argus", hailed by Sue Townsend as 'very funny'. Finally, in "The Cucumber Man", Henry decides to take on a new role and a new challenge - working for the Cucumber Marketing Board in Leeds. Stumbling through the fifties, sixties, seventies and eighties, Henry accumulates marriages and children along the way and "The Complete Pratt" is a touching and hilarious ride through a divided Britain...
