Citizen Survivor Tales by Richard Denham
Maryanne Coleman was a popular journalist who worked for The Ministry during the 1940s. While under the guise of a reporter for The Southern Herald, her role was to interview a variety of survivors of ‘The Great Tribulation’ which had plunged Britain into chaos. She travelled throughout Britain speaking to a wide assortment of characters and those who had come to the attention of The Ministry and to collate information, both overtly and covertly, on the current state of the nation. Although her interviews were later recovered, Maryanne herself went missing. Her fate is currently unknown. It must be conjectured that one of the interviewees was involved in her disappearance. Here then, is a collection of ten of Maryanne’s most interesting, amusing, bizarre, frightful and compelling interviews.
Well, this was certainly unlike anything I have ever read before. I don't think I've ever read anything even similar at all. The interview style was certainly interesting and I looked it more than I thought I would. Some of the "interviews" were good, some strange, and some were downright odd!
Citizen Survivor Tales is a fiction book but it has a non-fiction feel to it. It's an enjoyable read. Well done! Thank you for sending it!
