Amy's (Audiobook) Choice - John Simm Reads "Billy Liar"
You all know how much I love audiobooks - BTW, have you signed up at Audible yet? It's the best. Anyway, I just received an email from CSA Word, a lovely indie purveyor of superb audiobook magic - they're featuring John Simm reading "Billy Liar":
They've got wonderful books read by great readers, including Benedict Cumberbatch, Tim Pigott-Smith (whom we all love in "Masque of Mandragora"), Sir Derek Jacobi, Philip Glenister, Simm's cohort in "Life on Mars," and my all-time favorite... well, just look for "My Family and Other Animals," a true exit-misser if there ever was one, which I was in the middle of when the Touch took a dive. I'm looking forward to starting it up again soon. Made me smile.
These sometimes show up on Audible US, but, if you want it now, get in touch with CSA. And, while you're at it, Netfilx the original non-Russell Crowe version of "State of Play," in which Simm stars as an earnest but slightly-misguided journalist, along with David Morrissey and James McAvoy. It's UK TV at its best, with bonus Bill Nighy!
