Now I’m curious about the stories that were left out of the book, because not ever having lived in those conditions, even at my poorest, I can’t imagine it being worse.

I remember when I read Angela’s Ashes , being appalled life was so harsh and cruel for people living in the 20th century. It was a fine book, I am glad I read it, but I don’t think I can ever read it again–I found it too painful. Maybe Bernard was trying to not to overwhelm his readers with some of the worst incidents . . . because it was pretty gritty as written.

There’s also the question of what a publisher is willing to publish and what an audience will believe …

Yes, I thought of that, too. A publisher wants something that’s marketable–it’s a business, after all– and if it’s non-fiction, it shouldn’t seem to be too far-fetched. A bit of a balancing act.

I need subtitles for Bernard Hare, and I think it is more due to mumbling than his accent.

I had issues with understanding him at times, and I think for the same reason. My hearing isn’t what it used to be, but even with the volume cranked to the max I was straining to catch certain words. And I pride myself on being able to understand a variety of UK accents.

I’m not British either, and he is difficult to understand, but I listened to the recording a couple of times, and third time lucky, I believe I now got most of it.
Bernard Hare is not used to being interviewed, and he’s rather soft spoken (also mumbles), so speaking into a microphone is awkward for someone who hasn’t done much of it, I mean in terms of how loud should you speak?

Some great questions, and some equally great answers.
