Philippa Gregory is an internationally renowned author of historical novels. She holds a PhD in eighteenth-century literature from the University of Edinburgh. Works that have been adapted for television include A Respectable Trade, The Other Boleyn Girl and The Queen's Fool. The Other Boleyn Girl is now a major film, starring Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman and Eric Bana. Philippa Gregory lives in the North of England with her family.From AudioFile:
A wonderfully rich and delicious book of confections to be savored and revisited, this assortment of funny, poignant, and thoughtful stories is brought to life by readers Jacqueline King and Richard Heffer. Philippa Gregory creates characters and situations that are almost too rich to listen to in one sitting. These characters are sure to move permanently into listeners' hearts and minds. Sadly, the outstanding collection is poorly served by its packaging. No author information is included, and the titles of only three stories are listed, leaving out the remaining titles. Another shortcoming: Some stories are interrupted and continued on another disc. S.J.H. © AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
