From the author of the “Uncommon Reader”, a witty tale of the Queen’s awakening to the merits of a good book, comes two new bawdy stories. "Smut Stories" is British humor ala Monty Python: absurd and sarcastic. I chuckled at the misadventures of the widow Donaldson whose reputation for believable role-playing as a patient for medical students turns out to be too good. She is at the end a happy camper . The second story, “The Shielding of Mrs. Forbes”, takes family secrets and indiscretions to a new high or low, depending on your definition of humor, as son, daughter-in-law and husband go to extremes to protect mother. But is Mrs. Forbes disposition really so delicate and sheltered? So nudge, nudge, wink, wink give Smut Stories a try!
