A Hand-book Of Volapuk by Andrew Drummond
After reading this review of the novel A Hand-book Of Volapuk by Andrew Drummond, I would love to read the book (in my copious spare time...) Sounds bizarre and fun and clever! With Volapuk and Esperanto and even Sherlock Holmes, what's not to like?
A Hand-book Of Volapuk concerns the efforts of Mr Gemmel Justice, a fervent campaigner for Volapuk, and the many trials he faces - largely at the hands of his arch enemy Mr Bosman, the chain-smoking champion of Esperanto.
By odd coincidence I read the review around the same time that I read the interview with Tomaso Alexander in the current issue of Kontakto (2006:3), in which Tomaso speaks about learning Volapuk. Clearly Volapuk is poised for a surge in popularity.
