Listen to Tea Reads, Episode 9: A World of Her Own by Penelope Lively

Episode Summary

This Friday's Tea Reads is a short story by the brilliant author, Penelope Lively. In 'A World of Her Own,' Lively tells the story of Lisa, a spoilt child whose selfish behaviour is excused because she is considered artistic by her adoring mother and (rather less adoring) sister. Lisa's lifelong extreme self-involvement certainly places her in 'a world of her own,' much to the dismay of those around her, and Lively's story serves as a grim warning to the dangers of pandering to an artistic temperament.
