Giles is a countryman who relishes solitude. His wife Mary thrives in company and enjoys frequent escapes to London.

After thirty years in a marriage of opposites, Giles and Mary have adapted to a life of domestic misunderstandings within comical misadventures.

In The Diary of Two Nobodies, you will have the unique opportunity to discover, first hand, what occurs when a man who sees himself as a cross between Mr Bean and Basil Fawlty shares his life with a woman who identifies closely with the Queen.

Featuring original illustrations by the artist Giles, himself.


The Review

Anyone who watches Gogglebox will be aware of the delightful couple from Wiltshire – Giles and Mary.

I won’t lie to you, they are my favourite couple on the show and I won’t be lying when I say that I kind of want me and my fiancé to have a relationship like they do when we are in our 60s. They are just too damn cute.

Their delightful book Diary of Two Nobodies gives us a glimpse into the domestic life of Giles and Mary through one year. Seeing the same situations from two different perspectives, you become aware how they often fall foul of mixed communication. However, you see how much they truly love each other and how their marriage has lasted.

Diary of Two Nobodies is utterly charming much like Giles and Mary. It is a brilliant gift for fans of Gogglebox.

Diary of Two Nobodies by Giles Wood and Mary Killen is available now.
