'Artichoke Hearts' has just been longlisted for the Carnegie Award. Sita Bramachari, the author, says this, about the audio recording: Artichoke Hearts is my debut novel and I was overwhelmed when it won the Waterstone’s Children’s Book Award 2011. When I heard that Tania was to record the book, I was delighted. I knew and admired her work from theatre. I have listened to the audio recording with my children and Tania’s beautiful interpretation and ability to get inside so many voices is really wonderful. My book is an emotional one and needs to be treated with great subtlety, not to be tipped over into the sentimental. Tania brings great intelligence into her work that makes it a joy to listen to.
