5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, funny, happy book to cheer anyone up!, 8 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Love, Nina: Despatches from Family Life (Hardcover)
Nina Stibbe's volume of letters - written to her sister whilst working as a nanny amongst the London intelligentsia of the early 1980s - is a joy to read. Her twentysomething self has a wonderful turn of phrase, and an eye for comic detail that is truly delightful. As she looks after the two precocious sons of the editor of the London Review of Books, we see the N1 set through the eyes of a provincial girl, who believes that Alan Bennett once starred in Coronation Street and Jonathan Miller is an opera singer. Every page has you smiling or laughing, often both. I would hope someone will buy the film rights, as this would make such a lovely piece of gentle British cinema. Much, much recommended!!!
