The Complete Henry Root Letters

The Complete Henry Root Letters

by William Donaldson

We’ve got Mark’s dad to thank for this one (he used to try and read the letters aloud, but could never get to the end for laughing). Henry Root is a spoof character who winds up establishment figures – Margaret Thatcher, James Goldsmith, Prince Charles – by suggesting ways they could do their jobs better. Believing him to to be eccentric but genuine, they reluctantly respond. A hilarious lesson in tone of voice.
