Nine Lives: monologues and first-person stories for reading aloud, by Julia Thorley
This book is a collection of nines tales, each about a different character. Meet the cast: there is a no-nonsense woman in her 60s who has a brush with authority; a down-at-heel private eye; a weary young mother from times past; a Victorian businessman afraid of progress; an Edwardian woman with her heart set on romance; a young man struggling with life; a teenage girl badly let down; a very special make-up artist; and a young mum who gets the last laugh. Each has a story to tell.
