Surely never had a male so adventurous a tale

I have started reading The Diary of a Nobody. "What a coincidence," comes a voice from the Peanut Gallery, "I am reading the same thing myself, this very minute." Quiet, you.

The name of one of the co-authors of this humorous Victorian story of life in the middle-class suburbs sounded familiar to me. After some grueling research, consisting of reading the Introduction, I learned that it is, indeed, the same George Grossmith who was a member of the D'Oyly Carte theater company and who played such parts as John Wellington Wells and Ko-Ko in the original productions of Gilbert and Sullivan's operettas, and who was portrayed in Topsy-Turvy as a snotty prima donna drug addict.
