After meeting at Irene's daughter Lesley's wedding reception, Irene Spencer and Vera Small became firm - sometimes too firm - friends, and so began their extraordinary correspondence, first recorded in 'Ladies of Letters'. In 'Ladies of More Letters', we find Vera installed at Far Shores Trailer Park and Irene living the 'high' life Down Under. In their letters they share all the twists and turns of life's rich tapestry, in true acerbic and forthright form - swapping family stories and subtle put-downs with ease and aplomb. The result is a sparkling collection of letters, full of humour and vitriol in equal measures. "'Ladies of More Letters' provides us with an invaluable insight into the mindset of the contemporary British pensioner...It is not only an historical document, it is a fascinating glimpse into the private worlds of two extraordinarily ordinary English women". (Sue Townsend). 2 CDs. 2 hrs 30 mins approx.
