World at One with Martha Kearney
25 August 2011 in Future of Publishing
I was interviewed by Martha Kearney for the BBC Radio 4 news programme, World at One, last week - Thursday 18 August. The interview was part of a series of interviews the programme was doing about the future of the book - my interview was preceded by interviews with the agent Andrew Wylie, Victoria Barnsley the CEO of Harper Collins, James Daunt from Daunt Books and Waterstones, and Graham Swift, the writer. All four of these interviews had been on the gloomy side so I was happy to lend an optimistic note to the discussion. Plus it was huge fun to go into Television Centre at 8 a.m. - after we recorded the interview, Martha led me through the newsroom where I caught a glimpse of the Today programme being made.
You can find the other interviews up on the producer Nick Sutton’s audioboo page.
