'Pantomime Stew' is the perfect title for this splendid collection of lyrics, comic-verses, ballads and stories by the late great Brenda Wootton. As a
performing artist of world renown she was truly a star in the firmament of 20th century troubadours and story-tellers.
Now her daughter Sue Luscombe has had the happy idea of assembling this remarkable anthology of work by her mother.
Among much else, here are also strings of Cornish sayings: ('Dawn knaw nobody don' wanna buy no donkey, do 'ee?'), both the famous Newlyn and Cornish Alphabets, (A is for ansum, which we d'think we are'), and a gallery of photographs (family and other) that in turn illuminate the story.
The whole book is irresistible: a marvellous self-portrait, warts and all, by a marvellous Cornishwoman who travelled the world but never forgot her origins.
And at its heart is a remembrance of that never-to-be-forgotton singing voice of pure silver. We have Brenda Wootton's recordings. 'Pantomine Stew' provides a matchless accompaniment.
**The copies we have of this book look slightly worn - this is how they arrived!**
