Holiday Romance and Other Writings for Children by Charles Dickens
Holiday Romance and Other Writings for Children (Everyman's Library (Paper)) - Charles Dickens

 



https://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/809

Opening: This beginning-part is not made out of anybody’s head, you know. It’s real. You must believe this beginning-part more than what comes after, else you won’t understand how what comes after came to be written. You must believe it all; but you must believe this most, please. I am the editor of it. Bob Redforth (he’s my cousin, and shaking the table on purpose) wanted to be the editor of it; but I said he shouldn’t because he couldn’t. He has no idea of being an editor.



Just the titular story, which is written by four young people from their position in a joint role playing game:

William Tinkling Esq. - Aged 8
Miss Alice Rainbird - Aged 7
Lieut.-Col Robin Redforth - Aged 9
Miss Nettie Ashford - Aged half-past six

I can't see today's youngsters buying into this and there is little by way of a hidden stream to keep adults interested, yet it does hold a certain charm.

Could not be confused with Angria.

Description: Niamh Cusack reads one of William Trevor's greatest short stories, set in an isolated dance hall in Ireland.
Each Saturday night, 36-year-old Bridie leaves her ailing father, and cycles to the Ballroom of Romance, a wayside dance-hall where the local men and women meet to dance, talk and perhaps find love. For twenty years Bridie has cycled the seven miles there and back again; now, no longer a girl, she knows her chances of romance are fading but still there is Dano Ryan.

Reader: Niamh Cusack
Producer: Justine Willett
Writer: William Trevor - born in 1928, William Trevor is widely regarded as one of the greatest contemporary writers of short stories in the English language. He has won the Whitbread Prize three times and has been nominated five times for the Booker Prize, most recently for his novel Love and Summer. Last year he was awarded the inaugral Charleston/Chichester Award for a Lifetime's Excellence in Short Fiction
