Betty MacDonald Had a Farm

Thursday 13 March 2008 11:30-12:00 (Radio 4 FM)


Lynne Truss celebrates the centenary of comic genius Betty MacDonald, author of The Egg and I, an account of her life as a chicken farmer. Betty's skill was to write about ordinary life and make it funny. Published during the depression, The Egg and I became an instant best-seller and went on to become a Hollywood movie. With interviews with her relatives and neighbours, Lynne tells the story of one of the sharpest wits of her time.

Followed by News.
