TALES OF EVERYDAY INTEREST

Arnold Bennett is one of the finest storytellers ever. He could describe someone reading an electric meter and make it enjoyable. Then, Andy Minter would bring it to life with his inimitable flair. How we are going to miss Andy.

Enjoying Arnold Bennett AND Andy Minter

Thoroughly enjoying all the “five town” stories AND the reader, Andy Minter. His accent and the way his voice changes for the different characters along with his timing are superb! I wish he would read more Arnold Bennett stories!
