Waiting for minimum critic reviews


No one in England would recognise famous painter Priam Farll, as he has lived abroad for many years. He is also quite shy and decides to changes identities with his valet so as not to be bothered by visitors and admirers. When he does return to England, however, the valet dies and Priam Farll soon learns that "he" is to be buried in Westminster Abbey with all due pomp accorded a famous person. The story that unfolds is both humorous and full of twists and turns.
