The Curious Quest
'The Curious Quest' Summary
Earnest is offended and makes a bet with his doctor. If he can make it through a year providing for his own bread, the Doctor owes him an apology. If Earnest loses the bet, he owes the good doctor a large sum of money as a contribution toward a new hospital.
Beginning the 12 month adventure on the streets of London, and with a mere 5 pound note in his pocket, the reader shares the adventure,, the ups and downs of Earnest's quest for employment. He sells stoves, works for a green grocer, suffers unemployment and deprivation, finds work as a chauffeur, a bus driver and sundry other jobs. The people he meets along the way are as varied as his jobs: a kindly landlord, a blackmailer, honest hard-working small businessmen, and not least--- Frances, the girl he will fall in love with.
