When you think about it, anyone wanting to quit a comfortable, well-paid job with a pension and an expense account to go and work for nothing knee deep in something is comical; and Les’s cartoons certainly help us see the funny side of things that smallholders, downshifters and good lifers get into. This book is guaranteed to bring a laugh at the turn of each and every page, as Les’s sharp, inspired drawings and slyly topical captions take a gentle but loving dig at downshifters, townies and rural living and a rather less kind dig at red tape, and politicians.
