The Art of Listening, Paperback / softback Book

The Art of Listening Paperback / softback


In this intriguing and occasionally surreal volume of novellas and shorter fiction, BAFTA-nominated screenwriter and acclaimed novelist Paul A.

Mendelson explores with humour and pathos how our words make us so vulnerably human.

A volunteer on a helpline hears a voice at the other end that changes her world forever... A failing scriptwriter tries to sell his mad movie to a famous director by pretending it's the story of his life... A proud Scotsman wakes up after a mild stroke to discover he has turned English... A middle-aged man whose young father died before he was born meets his long lost parent in a dusty attic... A husband leaves his wife forever - until he realises he has left his precious watch behind...
