Today we’re delighted to share a brand new audiobook edition of Another Twist in the Tale by Catherine Bruton, author of the award-winning No Ballet Shoes in Syria, read by none other than BAFTA-winner Miriam Margolyes – and you can listen to a preview of the audio edition below.
A brilliantly-imagined sequel to Dickens’ much-loved classic, Another Twist in the Tale is the story of Oliver Twist’s long-lost twin sister, Twill – and her journey through the gambling dens and workhouses of London, as she attempts to make a life for herself, rescue her friends, and uncover the mystery of her past, while meeting some familiar faces along the way…
With beautiful writing, and an incredible atmosphere and setting, Another Twist in the Tale will bring a much-loved classic to a new generation of readers.
And we’re thrilled that the audiobook has been read by Miriam Margolyes, who won a BAFTA for her role in Martin Scorsese’s The Age of Innocence, and is also known for playing Professor Sprout in the Harry Potter film series, as well as roles in Babe, Romeo + Juliet, Ladies in Lavender, and numerous other films.
Here’s what Catherine Bruton said about Miriam’s reading of the book: “Miriam brings every page, every character so vividly to life, each twist in the tale is delivered with such delicious gusto, each character is more glorious and grotesque and funny and absurd and moving and brilliant than the last! I feel quite sure that Mr Dickens would have loved it every bit as much as I did!”
