This week’s book was ‘The Threepenny Novel’ by Bertholt Brecht.
I have to admit that I didn’t even realise we’d got it in the house until I was browsing the shelves and I came across it. I knew it was based on his ‘The Threepenny Opera’, which in turn was based on John Gay’s ‘The Beggar’s Opera’ , and I knew it featured the character Macheath. And that was it.
So…what did I think?
