    The honourable Christopher Fancot, on leave from the Diplomatic Service in the summer of 1817, is startled to find his entrancing but incorrigibly extravagant mother on the brink of financial and social ruin - and more than alarmed that his identical twin, Evelyn, Earl of Denville, has disappeared without trace. Christopher, or Kit, the respectable brother, is forced into an outrageous masquerade by his wayward family's tangled affairs. But in the face of Evelyn's continued absence, even Kit's ingenuity is stretched to the limit.

    What made the experience of listening to False Colours the most enjoyable?

    Georgette Heyer's story about one twin taking the place of another was tons of fun. Heyer really knows how to draw a character.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of False Colours?

    The moment I enjoyed most in the book was when Kit Fancot, the twin who was forced to step into his brother's shoes, creates a scheme to untangle the tangle the deception caused.


    Have you listened to any of Phyllida Nash’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The performance was superb as is usual with Phylida Nash. I don't know how one voice can portray numerous characters, male and female, but she pulls it off.

    It begins with a simple ritual: Every Saturday afternoon, a boy who loves to cook walks to his grandmother’s house and helps her prepare a roast chicken for dinner. The grandmother is Swedish, a retired domestic. The boy is Ethiopian and adopted, and he will grow up to become the world-renowned chef Marcus Samuelsson. This book is his love letter to food and family in all its manifestations. Yes, Chef chronicles Marcus Samuelsson’s remarkable journey from Helga’s humble kitchen to the opening of the beloved Red Rooster in Harlem.

    Maybe Samuelsson didn't realize how offensive the F-word is because he is a non-native English speaker. His editors should have given him more guidance.
