george and sam

Nancy Banks-Smith's short television review in the paper yesterday was a typical example of the brilliance of her writing, which is always economical, direct and insightful. But she can't take the credit for the most charming extract, as follows.

"Nowadays candles suggest birth, not death. In Charlotte Moore's book George and Sam, her autistic son, seeing candles in a church, runs down the aisle shouting "Cake!" and blows them all out. Giving God a much-needed laugh".
