About this item

In the months following his wife’s death, Mr. Preemby, a retired laundryman, becomes convinced that he is the incarnation of Sargon, the ancient king of Sumeria, returned to save a world upturned by World War I. Trying to make sense of Mr. Preemby is his stepdaughter, Christina Alberta. A masterclass in comic invention, Christina Alberta’s Father depicts characters who long for something to believe in, just so long as it is not "some horrible Utopia by Wells," but whose attempts to change the world are always doomed to disappointment. Whether taken as a social satire, a psychological study or a critique of Wells’s own beliefs and relationships, this book makes for a fascinating and delightful read.
