Featuring Anna Woodford, Andrew McNeillie, Jeffrey Wainwright, Howard Jacabson, Raymond Tallis
Mary Weston begins a three-part serial set in the time of the First World War, with flashbacks from an alternative world. The great Victorian literary periodicals regularly offered their readers a novel in serial form: in that way, all the nation were reading Dickens at more or less the same time, like a great family. This is The Reader’s attempt to revive the tradition.
Bit at the Bottom:
I might have thought of my father then
weighed down by kids, and bills, and a brush,
my father who wouldn’t fly, who bore
the name of the patron saint of travellers.
