Can You Help Me Find A Book?

I've searched for ages for a certain book, but I can't find it!
Please help. Has anyone ever heard of British Albion by Keith Waterhouse, and do they know where I can purchase it.
Amazon.com has never heard of it and neither has Fullertons, the book search. It is probably out of print.

Barnes & Nobel doesn't list it on the used book page and I suspect that either the author or the title is wrong.

If you're in the NY city area, why not have a librarian do a search for you. They might have it on their shelves, there.

I also could not find anything on the author nor the title, check to make sure the spelling is right and also you have the right author.

Thanks for your help! The title and author are right, but the books seems not to exist any more. I will try a librarian search in my area (London), but I may have to write to Keith Waterhouse. Do you know what British newspaper he works for?

I'm sorry, but I don't know.

Have you done a Google search?

I saw a reference that Waterhouse worked for the Daily Mirror and Punch.

Thanks. I will try the Daily Mirror, but report back if it comes to nothing!

You want Office Life by Keith Waterhouse:
"Clement Gryce knows there is something strange about his workplace, British Albion; will he expose the idiocies of commercial bureaucracy?"

Eos is right.

F0 222. Waterhouse, Keith. Office Life, Michael Joseph, 1978.
a lampooning mystery novel: Clement Gryce knows there is something strange about his workplace, British Albion; will he expose the idiocies of commercial bureaucracy?
hbk, d/w, 236 pp, ex-lib, slight wear and tear to laminated cover. Very Good. £3.50 / $6
This description is from dustybooks and you can buy it here. I've never bought a book there, so I can't recommend them.

Amazon wants $55 for it. Shocked

So I'd probably buy it from Abe. He has them starting at $3.78 and I'm quite comfortable recommending this site.

Thank you very much, all of you. I was buying this book for my Dad, who was so convinced it was called British Albion. I had totally forgotten about this post until today, and I just decided to check back. My Dad will be overjoyed when I give it to him for his birthday. Thank you so much.
