Description

DAILY MAIL BOOK OF THE WEEK

‘A sparkling memoir… My hope is that Philip Serrell will do for the antiques trade what James Herriot did for cow’s bottoms, as his memoir contains every ingredient for similar popular success… Serrell is laugh-out-loud funny.’ Roger Lewis, Daily Mail

***

When Philip Serrell gave up teaching to become a professional auctioneer, he thought he was embarking on a sensible and safe career… a quiet life in the country with no surprises. How wrong he was. In What Am I Bid ? he tells of life after the events he described in his previous memoirs, An Auctioneer’s Lot and Sold to the Man with the Tin Leg , to bring his story up to date. From dodgy cars to fakes in the saleroom; angry livestock, mangled silverware and tortuous - not to mention muddy - experiences in local markets and farm sales, Philip has been there, done that and got the hoofprints on his suit to prove it.
