Sintesi dell'editore

Surreal and splendidly unconventional, The Hearing Trumpet is an apocalyptic fairy-tale quest about an occult old ladies' home and the spry nonagenarian who ends up there. After coming into possession of a hearing trumpet, 92-year-old Marian Leatherby discovers her son's plans to send her to a nursing home. But this is no ordinary place.... Here there are strange rituals, orgiastic nuns, levitating abbesses, animalistic humans, humanistic animals, a search for the Holy Grail, and a plan to escape to Lapland and knit a tent....

Surrealist painter Leonora Carrington's novel is an exhilarating journey brimming with laugh-out-loud humor and absurd lunacy.

A unique story by a unique mind.

I so much enjoyed this light-hearted, often comical, well-written and skillful story. So entertainingly laying bear the foibles of humanity from the perspective of a ninety-something adventuress.

Old woman's daydream?

Brilliantly performed. The voice actress kept me engaged. The story itself started very much normal than took a drastic dip into fantasy out of nowhere. Interesting to say the least.

Very different, magical in a strange way.

Not sure what I expected but it is an interesting read. Very female led which is great, can be a bit confusing towards the end. Would love to hear other people's views and analyses of this book.

Sublime

The great feminist classic, gloriously irreverent, screamingly funny and superbly read by Sian Phillips. Life is not complete without reading this novel.

Not for me

It feels quite dated. A hippy era book. The mystic, spiritually seems a little contrived. It didn’t make laugh either, but humour is an individual taste.
