More Information

Description:

Thomas Anstey Guthrie (1856-1934) was an English novelist and journalist who wrote his comic novels and humorous short stories under the pseudonym F. Anstey. "Sparkling Biacrene" is a humorous story about a young chemist who invents a marvellous new type of non-alcoholic drink, based on a marvellous Amazonian herb with astounding properties. He names his invention "Sparkling Biacrene" and excitedly invites his uncle to dinner with his employer and a manufacturer of soda waters to discuss the commercial potential of the drink. But a set of amusingly contrived circumstances turn the encounter into a hilarious farce as the mysterious drink has most peculiar effects on the guests.
