A Little, Aloud with Love: Prose and poetry for reading aloud to someone you love

by Angela Macmillan (Editor)
£12.99   paperback  Vintage Publishing (Chatto & Windus) (2016)

A Little, Aloud with Love: Prose and poetry for reading aloud to someone you love by Angela Macmillan (Editor)

"O tell me the truth about love."
(W.H. Auden)
Many of the most popular works in the English language celebrate love in all its forms: that heady first flush, the agony of heartbreak, joyful reunions, the love of a parent for a child... And what better way to share these beautiful pieces than to read them aloud, to someone you love?
 
Research has shown that being read to makes us healthier and happier, it enriches our hearts and minds. Bring real pleasure with poetry and prose, favourites and new discoveries, especially chosen to be shared. Read ‘Our places by the fire place’ to a parent, ‘My love is come to me’ to a partner, ‘Most near, most dear’ to a child or ‘A need to reach out sometimes’ to a friend. Discover Haruki Murakami’s quirky take on love at first sight and, alongside it, enjoy the immortal wisdom of Walt Whitman.
 
The publisher is donating all royalties from this book to The Reader, the leading UK agency for reading and health.
