‘The Uncommon Reader’ by Alan Bennett

41kzL1OuhAL._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_ If there is any pleasure in being a frequent customer of the British Rail is the number of hours you can devote to reading. I’ve been coming and going between Plymouth and Leicester and it has given me the opportunity to catch up with some reading. The Uncommon Reader is a very short book that fitted perfectly in one leg of the journey and made it extremely pleasant . What a funny delightful story, full of irony and criticism hidden behind its supposed lightness. Highly enjoyable.
