There's No Need to Shout

By Lynne Truss. On the English south coast stands the wind-battered town of Meridian Cliffs, where Sarah Birkett dreams of a small improvement in her life, involving Daniel Craig.

Lynne Truss reads the first of eight stories about the inhabitants of Meridian Cliffs, a morose and wind-battered town on the South coast of England which lies, curiously, at longitude 0 degrees 0 minutes west, and also 0 degrees 0 minutes east.

Due to rampant coastal erosion, the town is literally shrinking in size. One longstanding resident is Sarah Birkett, who dreams of a small improvement in her life, involving shiny bobbins and a Daniel Craig calendar, open at August.
