The Pleasure of my Company

'An immensely entertaining, laugh-out-loud funny read'

Weidenfeld and Nicholson

(1)

From Steve Martin, one of our best-loved comedians, a fantastic new novel with an unforgettably weird, original and ultimately engaging character - Daniel Pecan Cambridge.

'Makes you laugh out loud' Sunday Telegraph

Daniel Cambridge is a thirty-three-year-old man who is slightly bewildered by life. He knows the exact wattage of the bulbs in his flat, and will panic if the wattage isn't kept constant. He can't cross the street unless two opposing driveways break the kerb. And he is exercised by the colour of hat worn by the local gas station attendant.

Such characteristics make it difficult for Daniel to find the right woman, but he's very keen on Elizabeth who's selling the flats across the street and Zandy who works in the local pharmacy (though he's yet to actually speak to her).

There's also the murder of Bob from downstairs. Daniel has an alibi but is still a suspect, and his agreeing to a TV reconstruction of the murder inquiry could well backfire. It might also jeopardise Daniel's chances of winning the Most Average American competition which he's entered (twice).

Steve Martin, who belongs to the most famous US Film comedians and entertainers, tells us a wonderful, tragic funny Story of the city neurotic, Daniel. He suffers and is marked with compulsive behavior. Because of his fear to get into unknown situations with tremendous fear he avoids to leave his home. In order to master his live he has constructed his own closed systems which need his full attention to forget about his fears. The girls he loves are out of reach for him or only interested in friendship. But at the end two people assist him to see that there is a live without feer, but that should the readers find out by themselves. In my opinion it is an emotional story about live, friendship, love with all their varieties. I on my side can only recommend to read the novel to have a funny time.
