This is probably important for young gay men but it is meant to be a story not just a series of vague descriptions and suppositions.

Tim Hanks brings this book to life!

This is such a poignant read. So beautifully produced and it is a reminder that listening to rather than only visually reading a text can be so enriching. I highly recommend this novel. Ann Patchett at her introspectively best.

A sad sequel

Unfortunately this novel did not live up To Kill a Mockingbird: maybe she needed Truman?

Would you consider the audio edition of Nutshell to be better than the print version?

Yes - enacted by excellent performer.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Nutshell?

The closing scene.

Which character – as performed by Rory Kinnear – was your favourite?

The unborn child. First peron narrator.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really becuase there were so many motfis and allusions to Hamlet that I needed to reflect on.

Any additional comments?

Very clever.
