THE UNCOMMON READER by Alan Bennett



Links for the East Side Readers' December discussion.
  • I searched the Queen's site in vain to see what she might be reading currently, but as the link shows, they're all far too busy. Still, apparently she has taken to wearing certain outfits again, as the credit crunch spares not even royalty.


Off topic, but perfectly on: Couldn't resist this. So happy this isn't us!! Holiday greetings!

Thanks for a great group for Alan Bennett's *The Uncommon Reader.* Great little book, funny, smart, precious, even, containing a great reading list and a wonderful re-imagining of the Queen, who speaks perfectly fluent French, it turns out.
