Each slice of life was just lovely and so heartening to hear: offbeat stories of human experience always make the world seem better. I especially enjoyed the porny book group, whose aged members told the reader that her readings are the highlight of their week

I could sense that my Aunt was hurrying the end of our lunch.  Asking for the bill she explained, “I really can’t be late to read porn to the blind”.  I assumed it must be a phrase like “I’m going to see a man about a dog”!
Quite the opposite…It transpires my Aunt has actually been reading hard-core erotica to a faithful group of elderly blind for 10 years. Naturally, I was intrigued.
