Celia Imrie’s pitch-perfect reading of Joyce’s wonderful epistolary novel is such a transporting experience that listeners may want to start again the moment they come to the end. “Dear Harold, this may come to you as some surprise,” writes Miss Queenie Hennessy from a hospice where she is preparing to die. As described in Joyce’s previous novel, THE UNLIKELY PILGRIMAGE OF HAROLD FRY, he is so surprised that he sets off walking the length of England to see her. As she waits, Queenie writes about their time together long ago, her life since, and the hospice experience. Imrie’s exquisite timing and precise, inviting voice render everyone from dear Queenie to a crotchety Scottish hospice patient vividly clear in this funny, heartbreaking, infinitely moving story.
