The Book Show

The Book Show

This week on The Book Show, Sinéad Gleeson visits Edinburgh as a new exhibition opens to celebrate the life of Muriel Spark, the author of The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie.

The Book Show is back for its fifth season. For the past few years we’ve interviewed hundreds of writers for the show. Now the writers get to ask the questions. In the first half of the season John Boyne, Eimear McBride, Eoin Colfer and Liz Nugent guest-present programmes. We’ll also hear from producers Regan Hutchins on Tristram Shandy and Zoë Comyns on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. 

This week on Sunday 25th March, John Boyne sits in the chair.
