The various voices Michael Kitchen uses in his superb narration of Keep the Aspidistra Flying (1998) kept me smiling throughout this surprisingly funny and romantic novel by George Orwell, an author I’d previously only known from my required high school reading of 1984 and Animal Farm. When I learned that there’s a movie adaptation starring Richard E. Grant, my first reaction was how much more suitable a 30-year old MK would have been for the role of the diminutive Gordon Comstock. MK playing opposite Helena Bonham Carter as Rosemary would be dream casting, imo.
