“An interview with Christopher Monk… I first interviewed Christopher back in April 2015. Christopher collaborates on projects in the heritage sector and in the creative industries. He’s well known for working with medieval manuscripts, including the John Rylands Library version of Forme of Cury, the official cookery treatise of King Richard II. And in case you’re interested, Christopher’s selections for Apocalypse Books were the thirteenth-century Bible Historiée, Douglas Adams’s The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, and Mary Renault’s The Charioteer“.
“A review of a new book by Julian Edge… I’ll be reviewing Loving Country, which came out earlier this year”.
“And What Are You Reading?… the section of the show where I ask writers about the books they’re reading at the moment. This week I’ve got another selection of reviews and recommendations. And if you’re a writer who’d like to take part, check out this post with details of how to join in!”
“Plus… you can hear my round-up of news from the World of Words. If you’ve got a news story you’d like to share, please use the News Form to submit it to the show. For review requests, please get in touch via the Contact Form“.
Catch the show on Saturday at 2pm on 106.6FM (if you’re in the North Manchester area) or listen online (if you’re further afield).
