What the Critics Say

"An excellent selection of poetry, correspondence and prose, including letters between famous literary couples like the Shelleys and the Brownings. Thomas and O'Mahoney's expressive readings sizzle with chemistry." (The Lady Magazine)

"...practise for falling in love again by listening to A Literary Love Affair, a cleverly compiled selection of letters to and from lovers (Anne Boleyn and Henry VIII, Shelley and Mary Wollstonecraft, Byron and Caroline Lamb, the Brownings, Oscar and Alfred) and in novels ranging from Pride and Prejudice to Women in Love. Narrators Natalie Thomas and Benjamin O’Mahoney interact with warmth and sensitivity." (Christina Hardyment, The Times)
