Out of the Woods but not Over the Hill | [Gervase Phinn]

Out of the Woods but not Over the Hill

For Gervase Phinn growing old is not about a leisurely walk to the pub for a game of dominoes or snoozing in his favourite armchair. As this sparkling collection of his very best humorous writing shows, he may be ‘out of the woods’ but he is certainly not ‘over the hill’.

Publisher's Summary

For Gervase Phinn growing old is not about a leisurely walk to the pub for a game of dominoes or snoozing in his favourite armchair. As this sparkling collection of his very best humorous writing shows, he may be ‘out of the woods’ but he is certainly not ‘over the hill’.

Looking back over more than sixty years of family life, teaching, inspecting schools, writing and public speaking, Gervase never fails to unearth humour, character, warmth and wisdom from the most diverse of experiences, whether they be growing up in Rotherham with the most un-Yorkshire like of names or describing why loud mobile phone users get his goat.

Brimming with nostalgia, gently mocking life’s absurdities, never shy of an opinion, this is Gervase Phinn at his wittiest, twinkly-eyed best.

    Story
    "I loved this book"
    If you could sum up Out of the Woods but not Over the Hill in three words, what would they be?

    Witty, fun, intresting


    What did you like best about this story?

    I loved listening to this book. After reading other of Gervase's books this book gives you an insight into where he got many of his ideas for settings , characters and story lines.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I enjoyed Gervase's ramblings about the English language. They were fascinating and written in such a way that they also humorous


    Any additional comments?

    Although I enjoyed this book, if you have read his other books, you do find yourself covering the same material that he has written before.
