Jack by DAVID MARSNALL Narrated by Joan Bakewell
A ' cautionary tale ' for married grown-ups, in which ' suburban and un-dynamic .lack ' goes metaphorically over the hill, to fetch a pail of water, and spills it in various directions. The vicar's rcmonstrations, however, prove as efficient a restorative as the vinegar and brown paper of the nursery rhyme, and Jack and Jill are able to resolve their geographical differences and live happily ever after.
