About Susannah York

Susannah York could very easily have taken the simpler road to the international recognition and stardom that she has achieved. Having graduated from the Royal Academy of Dramatic Art (RADA) in London she began her steady rise to fame with her role as Alec Guiness’ daughter in Tunes of Glory (1960), and went on to star in a number of highly successful films including The Greengage Summer (1961) and Freud (1962) and culminating in Tony Richardson’s hugely popular version of Tom Jones (1963) starring opposite Albert Finney, which established her internationally.
At this point Susannah chose a series of intellectually demanding and culturally challenging roles in films such as A Man for All Seasons (1966) and The Killing of Sister George (1968), They Shoot Horses Don’t They? (1969), for which she was awarded a BAFTA and Golden Globe and Oscar nominations and Images (1972) for which she won the best actress award at the Cannes Film Festival.

My Lady Ludlow Audiobook

My Lady Ludlow Audiobook
Written by Elizabeth Gaskell
Read by Susannah York

Highly acclaimed actress Susannah York reads this exclusive unabridged audio book of My Lady Ludlow.

Written by Elizabeth Gaskell, creator of the characters that were to become the basis for the hugely successful TV series Cranford, My Lady Ludlow paints a brilliant picture of the shift in power in a rural Northern village, from the velvety feudal Ludlows to the glitter of the new money rattling through the system courtesy of the brazen baker from Birmingham.

Lady Ludlow’s appalling snobbery, prejudice and her bred-in-the-bone conviction as to the superiority of the English aristocracy and their feudal way of life are tested, and found wanting, in this radical tale of the collapse of a social system.

One of the extraordinary things about My Lady Ludlow as a book is that in spite of the creation of a monster of hide bound arrogance and pretention Gaskell cannot help but produce a character that you end up rooting for right up to the wide grin induced by the final twist in the plot.

This very special unabridged audio book of  My Lady Ludlow is available for download as mp3 files and in audiobook format for your iPod - only from Silksoundbooks.
