Barry Humphries: The Railway Children

This month we are lucky to have received recommendations from two special guests.

Actor, comedian, artist and author Barry Humphries has chosen The Railway Children by Edith Nesbit. He says of the book:

“A favourite book from my childhood by a wonderful writer, poet and author of ghost stories. The last paragraph still moves me.”

We are also honoured to welcome the world-famous gigastar, mother, grandmother, godmother, widow and Australian, Dame Edna Everage, who has chosen My Gorgeous Life by Dame Edna Everage.

 “I have read many showbiz autobiographies but this is the most truthful and inspiring.”
