Fry's BBC Radio 4 program is an entertaining series about the intricacies and nuances of the English language. This edition includes four half-hour programs, the first of which is on the subject of color and how it is used to convey emotion. The program includes a fascinating account of a color-blind man who can only see in black and white. Other episodes include "The Art of Conversation," "Intonation," and "The Story of the Letter X." Fry's narrative is accompanied by interviews with linguists and botanists, as well as an entertaining dinner conversation with artist David Hockney. VERDICT Charming, amusing, and informative, this audiobook will appeal to fans of Fry and lovers of language and words.--Phillip Oliver, Univ. of North Alabama Lib., Florence (c) Copyright 2013.
