A lovely little tidbit, Mike. I had a window cleaner once too. It was at work not at home. I have to clean those myself. But my window cleaner at work did like to talk. (When he was on my side of the window) He never recommended any good books though. Too bad.

You've been warned, Regan. If I ever bump into my old window cleaner again, I'll tell him there's someone over the pond who's never read Barnaby Rudge :)

Hi Mike,
Is this story true? If it is, it's amazing. It sounds like an excerpt of a play (unless you have written one). In any case, I loved this anecdote.
Cheers!

Thanks, Claudia. Yes, it's absolutely true.

How cool, almost like having a chimney sweep come by to clean out the bats and then finding out he loves Dickens... Never hear of Barnaby Rudge, probably will never read the book and as my windows at home are all low hanging never hire a window cleaner either... More is the pity, might find out there was an interesting person using the bucket and squeegee!

Hi Jackie, Barnaby Rudge is worth the effort - which is more to be said for cleaning windows :)

Love it!

I have a real window cleaner and he's marvelous. He's a Burnley FC fan so we tend to talk football but I'm going to ask him what his favourite book is...
