Afternoon Reading - For the Love of a Child - Call Me and I'll Come to You


The second of three stories about relationships between adults and children, drawn from real-life. Written and read by Julia Blackburn, whose most recent book 'The Three Of Us' has won the 2009 Pen/Ackerley prize for memoir and autobiography, the stories have Julia's mesmerising delicacy of touch in the way they describe human relationships and her capacity to find the best in people while encompassing their frailty. 2. Call me and I'll Come to You At a low ebb, Julia rediscovers a letter her father wrote to her before his death. He describes how the love between a parent and child is not diminished by death. Julia is comforted, as if her father was with her in that moment. Producer...Mary Ward-Lowery Music: Trois Morceaux en Forme de Poire by Eric Satie.
