I enjoyed every aspect of this reading, the reader's voice was perfect, in fact, there were many moments I imagined it was the author himself speaking.
The story is told so well and covers many countries and huge world and life-changing events in a clear and personal way.
It made me think about acquisitions, about art's place in history and about the difference between oriental and occidental art in our culture.
Well worth listening to for a thoughtful and evocative read!
Dirk Bogarde takes you by the hand and leads you through his childhood with ease - I love all his books but those which centre on his time as a child in the rosy days betwixt the wars are especially precious - to think his agent wanted him to take a more 'adult' approach ? - thank heaven he didn't listen - but you should - wonderful stuff.
