The Empathy Museum presents

“This is my desert island book! With the people in these pages for company, you will never feel alone. This semi-autobiographical novel about a poverty-stricken childhood in Edwardian London overflows with loving kindness. Its theme, which starts hesitantly but steadily gathers strength and rises to a triumphant crescendo at the end, is music and its power to educate us – to lead us out into life and to make us truly human. ”
