World Book Day…

So, for World Book Day I decided to go for Alan Bennett’s latest (released today 7th March) The Shielding of Mrs Forbes.

I love Alan Bennett, and find his humour very much like mine, dark! I first discovered him back in the ’80s when he did Talking Heads. If you have never heard of them, they were dramatic monologues that were either very amusing or painfully sad with a touch of humour. Below is one of his monologues entitled “Miss Fozzard Finds Her Feet”, played by the great Patricia Routledge.

I hope you enjoy, and maybe try reading some of his works.

  1. Loved watching that video thank you. We love World Book Day too and my son became David Walliam’s ‘Ice Monster’ at school today. Also proving to be a great read.
