Editorial Reviews

Richard Steele's "A Day in London" follows the narrator on a nearly 24-hour journey around this bustling hub in 1712. Our tour guide particularly enjoys watching "agreeable young women". Ultimately, he surmises that empathy - gazing upon strangers as if they were friends - leads to happiness. Neville Jason harnesses his naturally reverberant voice to make this work digestible and engaging. He endows the narrator with an accurate mix on pomp and intellect. In a mere 13 minutes, listeners explore all of London and learn a thing or two from a great mind of the past.

Publisher's Summary

This is an essay from the Favorite Essays collection.
Here, in this unusual collection, are some of the greatest essays in Western literature. Witty, informative and imaginative, the topics vary from starvation in Ireland, fine China, the extension of railways in the Lake District, and the tombs in Westminster Abbey. A little like after-dinner monologues, they are passing thoughts expressed as journalism. Neville Jason reads with urbane clarity.
