Big Achy Love

Written by Nick Angel. Read by Margaret Ashley. Original music by Kati Brien.

A dark fairytale about an orphan girl, the second world war, and the royal houses of Europe. I wrote the story after visiting Birkenau and reading Primo Levi who gave more of himself than any other writer I can think of. If a writer should be like a fireman and run towards the metaphorical ‘burning building’, he did it harder, and at the ultimate cost. For more, see episode notes.
