Finding himself surrounded by specialists in humiliation a professional, public and private a will he learn his lesson? Follow the adventures and misadventures of this lovable but hapless rogue, a man all the more endearing for his weaknesses.

An Aga-saga for men (and for women wishing to know what men are really thinking), Lessons in Humiliation falls headlong towards a most unexpected dAcnouement. Fans of humorous fiction will find themselves crying both with laughter and out of sympathy for the plight of the narrator.This is in reality one of those utilitarian grey barns which under normal circumstances would house five hundred tons of straw, a collection of obsolete Massey-Ferguson engine parts and endless scrumps of oily orange and blue baler twine.
