"Love and War in the Apennines" on Radio 4


The memoir "Love and War in the Apennines" by Kennington resident the late Eric Newby was discussed on "A Good Read" on Radio 4 on 4th February.  It is a favourite book of the presenter Harriett Gilbert.  Other participants mentioned Eric's bravery, and asked whether Eric and Wanda really fell in love under those conditions.

Harriett Gilbert had asked her mother whether Wanda was still alive, and her mother had assured her that Wanda must be, because she was tough.  And indeed Wanda is very much alive and still living in Kennington.

Eric Newby gave a collection of his books to the Durning Library, and gave a memorable reading from the book there a few summers ago.

The repeat is this Friday night, 7th February.  You can listen again for a week.
