Product Description

When her corgis stray into a mobile library parked near Buckingham Palace, the Queen feels duty-bound to borrow a book. Discovering the joy of reading widely (from J.R. Ackerley, Jean Genet, and Ivy Compton-Burnett to the classics) andintelligently, she finds that her view of the world changes dramatically. Abetted in her newfound obsessions by Norman, a young man from the royal kitchens, the Queen comes to question the prescribed order of the world and loses patience with the routines of her role as monarch. Her new passion for reading initially alarms the palace staff and very funny consequences for the country at large. 'Deliciously funnny fantasia.' 120p.
