“A masterpiece of comic brevity”

This is what the Observer offers on this short narrative about ‘the Queen’ passionately taking up reading.  Alan Bennett tells a great tale, with a two-fold benefit:  a short respite from cockroach despair, the guillotine, and the door slammed in Torvald’s household, all great favorites in the IB literature course AND a possible incentive to discover the delights of reading.  Well worth your time.
