A dozen of the most successful and popular writers today including:
Helen Fielding, Robert Harris, Patrick Marber, Zadie Smith, John
O'Farrell, Roddy Doyle, Melissa Bank and Irvine Welsh have written
6000-word fictional monologues along the lines of Alan Bennet's
Talking Heads. And Colin Firth makes his début as a fiction writer.
The result is a book of completely original stories that have
heart, soul and wit. All the writers have given their work free,
and Penguin is giving L1 per copy sold to the TreeHouse Trust, a
charity which is setting up a unique school for autistic children.
