Publisher's Summary

Coventry Dakin's tale begins with her accidental killing of her neighbour. Forced to flee the law, she deserts her council estate, her boring husband and two demanding children for the anonymity of London's cardboard city.
Originally published in 1988, Rebuilding Coventry is a brilliantly observed satire of Eighties Britain and the hypocrisy of the middle and upper classes.

Awful narration

What disappointed you about Rebuilding Coventry?

I always have an audible tape on the go but can't stand to listen to the narration on this one. Irritating to the extreem.

Definitely worth a listen!

Another clever observational tale from Sue Townsend which kept me well entertained over the Christmas season.
