Is the interview on radio or TV?

BBC Radio 4.

Sara pointed out that there might be a glitch but if it's on I'll certainly report back

This is all very mysterious. Someone else has told me it’s on Thursday, knowing I’d be interested in AA (and presumably having heard an announcement on R4 after yesterday’s programme) but it’s not in next week’s Radio Times, and doesn’t come up when googled....

And maybe, he thought, they'd never got much farther than that.

Thank you for this link.

I liked hearing AA read the extract from FM.

The BBC Radio 4 Book Club programme including something on AA is supposed to be on at 3.30 today, though there still seems to be some doubt about it (different info in various papers). Anyway, I am hoping to hear it!

The talk was quite short - and no mention of anyone being disappointed (and I’m sure we are not the only ones who were!).

He was his usual charming self; the main points that stick in my mind were that he is constantly exploring in all his books the theme of fatherhood and his relationship with his own father, and also the theme of time. It was quite similar to the earlier Radio Scotland interview.

I’ve just reread the Da Capo section and am very happy with it as a final chapter to CMBYN. And I am not totally against the earlier parts of the book: I didn’t dislike their stories, but they seem to me to be far too wordy, and to lose their power for this reason...

But that last chapter, yes... I liked the way that everything wasn’t perfect, that there was some shyness and hesitancy between them, but that when they did eventually make love, they reacquainted themselves with each other’s bodies and minds, and that the time lapse just disappeared. And now they have the maturity and experience to make their future life together work well.


My worry: when I read the very end of CMBYN again I shall be wondering why nobody mentions little Oliver. :)

Thanks for your notes on the talk, Sara.

I found aspects of Da Capo quite true to life and Cadenza quite intriguing.

Yes, between the two books, there are certainly loose ends.
