Episode 16 – 12 September 2018

This week, Melissa Cranenburgh speaks to Stuart Kells about his new book, Shakespeare’s Library: Unlocking the Greatest Mystery in Literature, a new take on the endless mystery of who or even what was Shakespeare, taking us through both different conceptions of the man himself and the library that purportedly constitutes his works.

Mel is then joined by Astrid Edwards to talk about Shaun Tan’s children’s book Cicada as well as Jessica Townsend’s Nevermoor: The Trials of Morrigan Crow series. They then swap notes on what it takes to do a good literary interview.
