BOOKWORM A Memoir of Childhood Reading

by | Read by Lucy Mangan

Biography & Memoir • 7.5 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2018

Author and narrator Lucy Mangan is British, charming, and wryly funny. She's also a bookworm. As a child, she read voraciously, found fictional life to be more compelling than real life, and wasn't sure how being sent to her room by herself was a punishment. This delightful tribute to the joys of reading is further elevated by Mangan's warm tone, appealing accent, and enthusiasm sprinkled with gentle self-deprecation. She expresses her special love for Eric Carle, Enid Blyton, THE SECRET GARDEN, and a lot of pony books. She also riffs on family members with affection and expert comic timing. Mangan maintains that if anyone was looking for her during her childhood, she could probably be found exactly where she had been eight hours before.
