A SPOT OF BOTHER by Mark Haddon, read by Simon Vance
Haddon’s story of retired Englishman George Hall and his family is a comic tale of love, need, and misunderstanding. Simon Vance inhabits everyone with class—as well as character-revealing accents and terrific, clear pacing. He gives us ponderously serious George; gay son, Jamie, and his leather-jacketed lover; confused daughter, Katie, and her working-class fiancé.
