I listened to Side I.... which only had one track and lasted over 70 minutes!.....and sadly I had to return the recording to the supplier. I've never read
De Quincey and was most surprise to learn of his early life, which was horrendously poverty-stricken. The reader sets a brisk pace never dawdling
and drawing the listened in. On the strength of side 1, would I but another set? Probably not: I was expecting opium to play a major part . However,
De Quincey writes well and I might change my mind; I've had the book for 20 plus years!
I congratulate Naxos for this issue (and Tale of a Tub) for bringing out classics of non-fiction as well as their valuable fiction recordings.
Try ebay for much of their catalogue: their recordings can be dire, because volunteers read them but, on the other hand, some ebay versions are in
the professional category. And at about £2 or £3 for say Desperate Remedies who's complaining?
Side One - a single track, over 70 minutes!

This is a hard book to get hold of. It's a very interesting read and a great gift. The seller communicates well and the delivery was super quick

It has been suggested that van Gogh painted the way he did because he was mentally ill. De Quincey is an odd character in this book he describes his life in the Lake District and his addiction to opium (which was quite common at the time, if you could afford it).
