The Timewaster Diaries (Sphere, 2008)
Rita fell down the stairs at twenty-two minutes past midnight.
Robin Cooper, author of The Timewaster Letters, turns his hand to diary writing in this hilarious new novel.
The year starts badly for Robin, who is fired for writing too many letters on company time, and for his wife Rita, who sprains her ankle (yet again). But Robin has a cunning plan – his marrying of the crossword and Sudoku into his devilish ‘crossoku’ – which might just make their fortune…
Return of the Timewaster Letters (Sphere, 2006)
In his 2004 bestseller The Timewaster Letters, Robin Cooper plagued everyone from the Campaign for Courtesy to the British Halibut Association with his bizarre and surreal written requests. In Return of the Timewaster Letters, he delivers another wonderful collection of his polite, persistent and peculiar correspondence.
Whether he is raising money for his nationwide hair-drying tour, booking a hotel room for his robot calf, or just trying to get rid of half a ton of unwanted herring, Robin’s imagination, as ever, knows no bounds . . .
