Fears for Frears
on 9 February 2014
Following Nina Stibbe's entertaining and very readable collection of letters to her sister, written during her period employed as nanny to the delightful Frears children during the 1980's, a huge and troubling lacuna remained, how was Sam Frears ?.
The delight in finding that "Being Sam Frears" was a recent mini biography of a very extant Sam , who has suffered the appalling and worsening rigours of the Riley- Day syndrome since birth, made the book a must. The humorous and stoic Sam the younger brother is more concerned about incipient baldness and West Ham than the more deleterious features of "the Riley-Day" as Sam refers it.
A satisfying companion to the serendipitous "Love Nina".
