Pop knows everything -- hes quiz champion of the Plough and Harrow and his ambition is to appear on Sale of the Century. Maggie knows about the great comedians -- Max Wall, Ken Dodd, Tommy Cooper, Eric and Ernie -- about country music, and about how her mother died. Pop sings with the poetry of the suburbs and aches with the poignancy of adolescence. Kitty Aldridge has a wonderfully distinctive voice and a deliciously sharp eye for the extraordinariness of ordinary lives.
