I was asked to read this by my book club. I drive for 2 hours a day, so I listen to books rather than read them.
Although I thought that this was a biography of Pam St Clements (east Enders actress), I became thoroughly engrossed. It has a very contemporary feel, so I was very surprised to hear at the end, that it was written in the 60s.
I generally listen to non-fiction titles, but this book (possibly enhanced by the narrator) really captured something. So much so, that I have started listening to another title by the same author (Stoner). This too gives an insight into another time in another culture.
There is a sense of post Victorian proprietary within this very detailed commentary about the period. (Stoner).
There are few authors of fiction that have any relevance, connection, enjoyment for me.
I cannot commend this audio edition highly enough. I was transported into a bygone age and could smell the characters.
For someone who dislikes fiction, this must be a positive recommendation.
It is more than fiction, however. It feels as though one has been transported to a bygone age.
This is a significant and thought provoking piece of literature that is part story, part documentary, part self-realisation and part social/political/historical commentary. So many parts!
I was very moved by this book and it has had a considerable impact upon my outlook in a variety of ways.
I can't say whether others will like it, but how can anyone not be moved by it?
