A Certain Age Summary

A Certain Age: Twelve Monologues from the Classic Radio Series by Lynne Truss

In the tradition of Alan Bennett's Talking Heads come Lynne Truss's twelve bittersweet tales about love, romance, friendship and family. Her six men and six women each have very different stories to tell, ranging from the wife who feels better when her husband disappears to the pedant who undergoes a TV makeover and the swimmer who can't escape the shadow of her sister...but all are funny, touching and as beautifully observed as would be expected from the bestselling author. Whether describing fathers and daughters, married men, cat-lovers or "other women", she is always brilliantly perceptive. These monologues were first aired on BBC Radio 4. You can download an excerpt from one of them below.

A Certain Age Reviews

"Not only are they sensationally well written - funny, poignant and beautifully observed - but they are also believable because they are spoken naturally by normal-sounding people." Mary Ann Sieghart, The Times "Dazzling series...sad, funny and, of course, exquisitely written; superb; finely crafted." Daily Mail "Beautifully observed glimpses into forty-something men's lives. The writing is just as sharp as when she wrote about women...Truss is simply a huge talent." The Guardian"
