Hosted by Nigel Beale, it features wide ranging conversations with authors, poets, book publishers, booksellers, book editors, book collectors, book makers, book scholars, book critics, book designers, book publicists, literary agents and other certified bibliophiles. In this volume, we talk about the nature of biography and how to write about famous writers and historical figures. Nigel's interview subjects in this volume include Victoria Glendinning, who discusses Irish novelist Elizabeth Bowen; George Tremlett, who discusses Welsh poet Dylan Thomas; and Ed Pettit, who discusses American horror legend Edgar Allan Poe.
