Written during lockdown by actor John Biggins, veteran of the National Theatre, regional rep and TV’s Lead Balloon, A Skimpton Compendium blows the lid on Faysgarth School in 1938. A laugh-out-loud satire on sport, politics and privilege, the book centres around Skimpton, popular Deputy Head Boy and sports supremo, his pals, his tormentors and his dastardly enemies. A great birthday or Christmas present - sure to raise a smile.
