Read full description of the books The Specialist:I read this as Terry Pratchett raved about it. It is a very good monologue about a man who is a specialist in building privy's.
And that's about it, the humour is nice and subtile, it's a very good short piece. It started off as a Vaudeville act and it really has that feeling, I assume it hasn't aged too well. I can sort of see how it influenced Pratchett's humour, in the very dry almost snideness of the humour.
Will take less than an hour to get through, so if you come across it definitely give it a shot.
Read information about the authorCharles "Chic" Sale was an American actor and vaudevillian. Named at birth Charles Partlow Sale, he was a son of Frank Orville and Lillie Belle (Partlow) Sale, and brother of writer, actress Virginia Sale-Wren.
In 1929, inspired by a carpenter named 'Lem Putt' from his hometown of Urbana, Illinois, Sale wrote The Specialist, a play about an outhouse builder. Because copyright infringement was widespread in Vaudeville, Sale enlisted the aid of two newspapermen to adapt The Specialist into a book.
