Product description

Review

For all its hilarity The Uncommon Reader has a heartfelt tone. It offers a lament on old age, some thoughts on reticence and a backward glance at a life wasted. (Sunday Times)

An exquisitely produced jewel of a book. (The Times)

Pure gold ... you would be hard put to find a defter satire on British philistinism ... the dialogue is priceless. (Mail on Sunday)

Light, fresh, witty and warm. (Daily Telegraph)

Alan Bennett's The Uncommon Reader would make a perfect stocking filler for just about anyone. (Monica Ali The Guardian 2008-11-29)

Book Description

What would happen if the Queen became a reader of taste and discernment rather than of Dick Francis?
