All Saints Church Evesham 4 of 5

Keep the Aspidistra flying is one of my favourite books . The Richard E Grant  Helena Bonham Carter film of it is not much good

I liked the book a lot, too... an engaging couple, no pun intended...
Bill Phillips: It is probably my favourite of his although I also like Coming up for air

One of Orwell's best, Bill.
Bill Phillips: It is one I have read several times

I wonder what the Mothers' Union do, and can you join if you are childless?
Bill Phillips: No idea.

I doubt it

George Orwell is a great author
Bill Phillips: I agree comrade
I hate unions Bill. If they don't work they shouldn't get paid. Brexit will sort them out.
Bill Phillips: I think you are trying to be controversial
An unkown book to me Bill. Your image is beautifully lit.
Bill Phillips: It is probably my favourite of George Orwell's books.
It's looking it's best here.
Bill Phillips: Aspidistras are usually neglected dull looking plants. This one has panache

I remember reading it years ago, didn't find out what aspidistras actually looked like until much later smile
Bill Phillips: Funnily enough the first time I read it I had no idea what an aspidistra looked like either!
Not affiliated to the TUC I hope
Bill Phillips: Unlikely Martin grin
this is a wonderful area in the church Bill... i love the mother and child symbol on the Mother's Union banner... also the carpet with children holding hands around the world....petersmile
Bill Phillips: The carpet is rather nice isn't it Peter?

I agree - it is a good book - time I read it again
Bill Phillips: I did read it again a few years ago but made the mistake of watching the DVD of the film not so long ago which was pretty awful

Not heard of either, I'm afraid. I like the light on the plant, though.
Bill Phillips: The book is well worth a read as is most of George Orwell
