"I enjoyed your visit so much, the time passed so quickly. You are a very kind person, and very understanding." Vera Clarke

"Claire is passionate about drawing out a person's character by getting them to delve into their experiences. The result is a highly polished recording, which is, as it says on the tin, a portrait in sound. I found the recording revealed much more than I expected, and was surprisingly moving. A wonderful exercise." Isobel Grant

A client recommended this book (Plain Tales from the Raj) as telling it how it was. Interestingly it’s compiled from radio interviews made in the early 1970s of people who’d experienced British India in the twentieth century. Wonderful to gain insight from so many different voices and perspectives to a world that’s passed.
