Ragionier Fantozzi, Ugo is the Italian everyman: abused by his employer, unhappy at home, and so occasionally tempted to rebel – in the hope of a better future…

“Of course! Everyone knows Fantozzi”, declared my Italian wife, on entering the kitchen to find out what I was laughing out loud about.

The 1971 book was a million-seller and was followed by several unforgettable movies, from which this second volume of mishaps has been selected (find the other here: Fantozzi)

There’s a free sample chapter (.pdf) to download, so you can check the level and format is suitable and listen to the online audio (look for the link at the top of Chapter 1.)

From next Wednesday Il secondo tragico Fantozzi will be priced at £7.99 in our online shop.

But until then it’s 25% less – at just £5.99!
