February Podcast part 1 – James Lasdun and John Burnside

We were always going to mention love in our February podcast but worry not, there’s no pink hearts or teddy bears here – only great books and authors and a look at the more interesting aspects of love. James Lasdun talks about his new novel The Fall Guy, a book set in the Catskills, filled with obsession and unease from the very first page. John Burnside’s latest novel, Ashland & Vine is also set in America and here he tells us more about how the absence of history in American life spurred him to tell the story of some of its counter-cultural past – a period of resistance that has striking parallels with the world we live in today. And because we love you we even round things off with a poem from Burnside’s new collection, Still Life with Feeding Snake.
