Description - Lydia Thrippe! by Daniel Sloate

"Lydia's life is a long cultivation of the absurd, the rude and what was once called the deviant, more commonly referred to nowadays as the crackpot. She's worth reading if only for the relief one feels after the book slips from the hands. Ultimately the girl is a lot of fun if you take her seriously as she expects you to." Daniel Sloate.
