Fiorella Files Episode 57: Peas and Queues, Pygmalion, Brick Lane

Peas and Queues – Sandi Toksvig

How does one navigate the minefield of modern manners when the boundaries of appropriate behaviour appear to be constantly changing? Probably not by reading this half-hearted attempt at explaining it all, but it is not an entirely uninteresting read…

Pygmalion – G.B. Shaw

One of Shaw’s most famous and best-loved plays, brought to late twentieth century audiences through the musical adaptation My Fair Lady. Pygmalion tells the story of language expert Professor Higgins and the wager he makes with his friend Colonel Pickering, that in six months he can pass off a Cockney flower girl as a duchess at the embassy ball. But can the headstrong Eliza Doolittle really fool society simply by being taught to ‘talk more genteel’? This is a classic comedy of manners, which takes a serious look at class politics and the unforeseen consequences of education. 

Brick Lane – Monica Ali

Nazneen is only a teenager when she is sent from her Bangladeshi village to London and an arranged marriage with the pompous but kindly Chanu. Nazneen struggles to adapt to life in a new country but then the dreamy Karim walks into her loveless marriage, offering her a way out if she can only bring herself to trust him.
