A laugh-out-loud satire on dogma, which tests the limits of freedom of expression. Everybody at the Women's Institute in the village of Upper Bottom is eagerly awaiting the arrival of a very special guest speaker: the world famous evolutionary biologist Professor Richard Dawkins. But with a blizzard setting in, their visitor finds himself trapped in the nearby town of Market Horten, with no choice but to take lodgings with the local Anglican vicar. Will the professor be able to abide by his motto - cordiality always - while surrounded by Christians? Will he ever reach Upper Bottom? And can his assistant, Smee, save the day?

Recensioner i media

'A zippy little farce... the Dawkins character is a hoot.' Guardian 'A comic masterpiece to rival Jerome K Jerome or PG Wodehouse.' Sarah Perry, author of The Essex Serpent 'it's very, very funny; also, slyly philosophical.' MrPorter.com 'When the Professor Got Stuck in the Snow - the novel that no one dared publish - looks set to become a comic classic.' The Spectator 'Hands down, the funniest book I have read in a very long time.' David's Book World 'Rhodes' gentle but very funny satire on science and religion.' Glasgow Sunday Herald 'One of the best non-stop light reads.' Bailieborough Library Reading Group 'A very funny Wodehousian comic novel of the kind you rarely see these days.' Daily Mail Scotland 'A farce that spins like a carousel, yet still manages to tell a good story and settle a few theological scores.' Sunday Herald 'This is Rhodes' funniest book - which is really saying something given the standard of his back catalogue.' Stewart Lee 'Going too far is Dan Rhodes' forte.' Observer
