Biography & Memoir • 2.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2001

The life of Geoffrey Hurford, a "codger," or repairing tailor, in Salisbury, England, has been one of overcoming obstacles. A childhood case of osteomyelitis led to several operations and the eventual amputation of his leg. Martin Jarvis takes Hurford's life--sometimes dramatic, sometimes mundane--and transforms it into a performance similar to Hal Holbrook's one-man show as Mark Twain. As the still working 81-year-old tailor, Jarvis rambles in character but often shows insight as he skips around, telling the story of Hurford's life in a fascinating character study. This glimpse of a life both ordinary and extraordinary is fascinating. J.A.S. (c) AudioFile 2002, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 02/ JAN 03]
