As far back as he can remember James Corden has only ever wanted to be in one place: in front of you, doing something to make you laugh, cry, shout, or giggle uncontrollably. At the age of 4, he grandstanded throughout his baby sister’s christening, standing on a chair in front of the whole congregation, pulling faces and cracking everyone up.

Claire Danes is such a great fit to read this amazing novel. Her tone, her phrasing, everything fits so well. I loved listening to this.
