IF WALLS COULD TALK An Intimate History of the Home

by | Read by Anne Flosnik

History • 10 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2012

This history of the house is mainly the history of the British home, though there are references to American and French homes and customs. Anne Flosnik narrates in a smooth British accent, using a slow, even pace as she tells the history of each of the four main rooms of the house—the bedroom, bathroom, living room, and kitchen. Flosnik employs a deeper voice and more forceful tone for the quotations interspersed in the text. The overall effect is an expert reading that makes the intimate details and customs of the home, roughly from the time of the Tudors to the present, both real and a pleasure to listen to. Her intonation and careful pauses allow Worsley’s research on the purpose of each room and how usage has changed over time to shine. E.N. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: AUGUST 2012]
