Every Christmas, The Spectator runs a short story but for the first time this year we’re having it read — and by the author. We’re delighted that Susan Hill, whose many books include The Woman In Black and The Mist in the Mirror, has agreed to read her new story, The Boy on the Hillsidewhich we are releasing as a special podcast.

If you can wire up your computer or telephone to the sofa, it’s the perfect way to spend some time on Christmas Eve.

The Spectator Christmas Story is sponsored by The Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
