Six more radio monologues written by Lynne Truss, author of the phenomenal best sellers Eats, Shoots & Leaves and Talk to the Hand. In the tradition of Alan Bennett’s Talking Heads come Lynne Truss’s male monologues: six tales of fidelity, pride, friendship, and family from the classic BBC Radio 4 series.
Six men have reached a certain age, their 40-something years, and each has a very different – and sometimes surprising – story to tell, from the brother who receives an unexpected letter to a compulsive philanderer, and a news photographer sent on an unusual assignment. All are funny, touching, and as beautifully observed as would be expected from the author of the phenomenal best sellers Eats, Shoots & Leaves and Talk to the Hand.
Starring Douglas Hodge, Robert Glenister, Peter Capaldi, Stephen Tompkinson, Simon Russell Beale and Stuart Milligan, Volume Two features the stories 'The Father', 'The Son', 'The Husband', 'The Pedant', 'The Brother', and 'The Married Man'.
I bought this because I thoroughly enjoyed the unabridged version but did not realise that these were the same stories - just a collection of the men's monologues. I feel I have wasted a credit by buying these twice
