Publisher's Summary

Author Paul Torday makes his debut with this clever absurdist novel. Fisheries scientist Dr. Alfred Jones is approached by an extravagantly wealthy sheik with a novel plan. To foster goodwill, the sheik would like to introduce salmon fishing to Yemen - the same Yemen that is largely a desert - and politicians think it's a great idea.

Seriously funny

Before reading, I mean hearing this book, I'd never considered fly-fishing, but now....
The book is original, clever, and bitingly funny. Thoughtful, too. The elegant writing is matched by the reading and production. The readers/actors did a wonderful job of accents and expressions. I may listen to it again just for the pleasure of it.
This was my introduction to Paul Torday, taken up at the recommedation of a friend. I'm going to look for more of his work right now.
