The Doll's House

Heartbreaking. The pain of class divisions as experienced through the lives of children. Masterfully read and written.

The kitchen child


A Godsend

I found this podcast just before leaving on a long trip and it was my companion on the journey for hours. It is wonderful. My favorites (so far) are the stories read by R Rendell and A S Byatt. Their post-story commentary was also fascinating. I had trouble with Colm Toibin's accent but what can be done about that. Thank you for this fabulous thing. And I love the opening music, by the way.
