Publisher's Summary

Patricia Hodge stars as Mattie in Juliet Ace’s four linked dramas, written especially for Patricia’s voice, in which Mattie reflects on her life as a naval wife, an actress and as a mother and daughter. In these funny and beautifully observed performances we come to meet Mattie as she shares her hard-earned understanding of her life, in all its intimacy.

    Episodes are:
  • The Captain’s Wife, broadcast 8 May 1998;
  • Small Parts, first broadcast 21 August 2000;
  • Skin, 15 March 2004 and the not previously broadcast episode:
  • Upside Down in the Roasting Tin, in which memories of Christmas dinners past and present give the listener a poignant and entertaining sweep through Mattie’s mixed experiences of the festive season.
