I just spoke to my daughter who saw "Miss Pettigrew Lives For A Day" last night and gives it two huge thumbs up. She alerted me to the fact that Lee Pace, who plays a character called Michael, is a total hottie. And now I have alerted all of you!
But Miss Pettigrew is not new to me. No. Not at all. Because Miss Pettigrew was the heroine of a book before she hit the big screen, a beautifully perfect little book from an equally perfect little publishing house called Persephone Books. I discovered these books several years ago when I was visiting my parents, who used to live in London.
Aahhh...how I miss the good ol' days when I could stay with my parents in that glorious city, have my kids spoilt rotten by their doting grandparents, wander the streets and shops, visit the museums, drink copious amounts of good tea, buy Percy Pigs at Marks & Spencer's (that one is for Alice and her son).
Sorry. Back to topic. They even have it as an audio book, which would be perfect for Suse as she commutes to work:
It's read by Frances McDormand, so it's sure to be sublime!
