    Story

    Written as a "report into the circumstances surrounding the decision to introduce salmon into the Yemen", this is a novel that is made up of e-mails, letters, diary extracts, records of the prime minister's Question Time, interviews, and chapters from the memoirs of a fantastically weasely Peter Mandelson-type figure.

    Sheila says: "Brilliant"
    "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen"
    Overall

    A wonderful light read - hilarious and melancholy in turns, and filled with observant political lampoon. Buy the unabridged version - its too good to settle for a pruned version

  • Essential Welty

    Story
    (9)

    In 1956, Caedmon had the great fortune to record Eudora Welty reading some of her finest stories. In her sweetly vibrant Mississippi drawl, Ms. Welty deftly draws the listener in to the uproariously multilayered "Why I Live at the P.O.", the spontaneous "Powerhouse", and the insightful voice of women's truths in "Petrified Man". Ms. Welty's reading brings immediacy and resonance to these wonderful tales.

    Judy says: "Lovely Stories"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    A must-have for lovers of gentle humorous short stories - rare and delightful.

    Story

    Richmal Crompton's "William" is known even to those who have never read the books featuring his anarchic exploits. For many, the scruffy, adventurous, and exuberant William and his trials and tribulations with the awful Violet Elizabeth and his companions in daring, Ginger, Henry, and Douglas, remain a part of our childhood. But what do we know of his creator, who always shunned the limelight? So shy of fame was she that, owing to her unusual Christian name, many people thought she was, in fact, a man.

    Christine says: "Well worth a listen"
    "Well worth a listen"
    Overall

    If you enjoy the Just William stories, this biography is pure pleasure. Read by award-winning narrator Martin Jarvis, who reads all the BBC recordings of the Just William Stories.
