Human Voices by Penelope Fitzgerald

In books read on October 21, 2007

I was actually looking for Offshore, Fitzgerald's Booker Prize winning book, but came across this one in the second hand bookshop instead. I'm glad I did, I'll definitely be looking out for more of her books.

This story is based at BBC Broadcasting House in the Second World War (a situation I think the author had first hand knowledge of). It's quite odd in some ways, full of acronyms that aren't always explained, and populated with characters who may or may not stay for the course of the book. I found it totally charming to read though. And very funny in places to boot.

Purchased on 16th October 2007.
