Summer Lies

I’m not sure how many words have gone in via ears as opposed to eyes, but there are few better voices than Bill Nighy‘s for stories. My favourite (story) recording is his reading of Lunch by William Boyd.

He is currently reading from Summer Lies by Bernhard Schlinck, author of The Reader, which was later filmed.

Why the shabbiness of human relations should make for such good tales is a puzzle – but not a recent one.
