Written and read by Tom Baker
Robert Caligari is a thoroughly evil thirteen-year-old who loathes the human race and gets his kicks from kicking pigs, piggy banks and bacon sandwiches. His actions lead to an accidental chain of events which is breathtakingly terrible and gruesomely comic in its outcome.
Tom Baker's reading has the power and conviction to carry the listener through his story on an exhilarating wave of fantasy horror and black comedy, not for the faint hearted!
