“A brief, entertaining book in a high-class, British style. Queen Elizabeth discovers the wonders of reading thanks to a library bookmobile. Lots of references to famous books.
If you like it, try The Clothes They Stood Up In also by Bennett about a bizarre burglary in which everything in a flat is taken– even forks, pencils, and toilet paper. It has curious effects on a London couple as they try to find out why it happened.
Both books are breezy, witty and funny. The author is a playwright, so the dialogue is delightful.
