Miles Maskell has lived a varied and adventurous life, and has travelled widely as amply demonstrated in his anecdotes. He has been a City of London wine merchant, owned two restaurants and a champagne bar, and eventually created a company letting top-of-the-range properties in southern France on behalf of their owners.

He has climbed mountains, shot wild boar in Poland, piloted a 4-seater aircraft of which he was a part-owner, parachuted in New Zealand, and ridden the Cresta Run in St Moritz. He is also a sculptor.

Written as a lighthearted and easy-to-read series of anecdotes, this is his autobiography and recounts some of the more entertaining experiences of his life to date, as well as a number of amusing incidents encountered by his relations and closest friends.

He was born in London where he continues to live, having been at school in Cape Town and then at Cambridge University.

Miles Maskell was born in London, where he has lived for most of his adult life. He moved to Cape Town with his family at an early age, only returning to London upon leaving school. After Cambridge University, he purchased a firm of wine merchants in the City of London, opened a champagne bar and two restaurants. He then created a business letting houses in France on behalf of their owners. He retired in 2018, and has spent part of his time since then writing this, his first book.

    Absolutely enjoyed reading My Wife's Canary. It has many interesting and funny stories which I loved. My favorite memoir was definitely "Trying to Book a Table" even though it was very hard to choose a favorite! The layout of the book was not too complicated and was easy to understand, it also had a perfect font size. Overall, this book is a 10/10 and I recommend that you buy it.

    So well written that it is an easy read. I finished it almost at a sitting - couldn’t wait to get to the next anecdote!
