Thomas Anstey Guthrie was an English novelist and journalist, who wrote his comic novels under the pseudonym F. Anstey. Guthrie became an important member of the staff of Punch magazine, in which his voces populi and his humorous parodies of a reciter's stock-piece represent his best work. Many of Anstey's stories have been adapted into theatrical productions, motion pictures. In later life, Anstey spent a good deal of time overseeing dramatizations of his works, and later film adaptations. According to the critics the fantasy of Guthrie's stories is a lighthearted critique of middle-class British society during the Victorian era. This book describes various adventures of a foreigner in London dealing with the difficulties of fully understanding a different culture. The hero's advanced English admonishes one of a excerption from My Fair Lady His English is too good he said that points that he is foreign. While other people are briefed in their native language English people aren't.
