After my latest read I’m still a confirmed Chevalier fan. I particularly admire how she conjures up a time and place with such economy and so little overt description. There must be a wealth of knowledge and research in there somewhere, to deliver such authenticity in so few words. For someone suddenly considering embarking on a historical novel (that’s me), the effect is both daunting and inspiring.
Meanwhile on a lighter note, East Bristol Chorus is launching into the summer (?) season with a Beach Boys medley. This definitely brightens up our Monday evenings, with the added twist that a shortage of men folk (where are they when you need them?) has seen several altos designated ‘honourary men’. Yes, you guessed. Of the many things I have aspired to be in my life, being a tenor isn’t one, but there you go.
Fun, fun fun (til Daddy took the T-Bird away!)
