Radley Jackanory Tuesday 14th November – ‘Enduring Love’ (Ian McEwan) as read by Mr Tolputt
Settled into the Panelled Room in Mansion, the boys on their bean bags and Mr Tolputt on a throne he had drafted in at the last minute, we were treated to the pleasure of 50 minutes of reading an enticing opening chapter, read with seam-bursting passion and all-consuming intensity.
Those present could not help but to go away considering what they had heard, having learnt a little about what it is to read, and to appreciate reading. The skill of the writing was matched by that of its oration, and all the better for it.
