Guardian Books Podcast: Life, death and literary critics
Listen to this week’s podcast about human obsession with immortality and the changing role of the critic in the era of social networking on my favourite newspaper, the Guardian‘s website (through which I discovered Katherine Mansfield and her work at the age of 14). For the first time, the Guardian invited readers to post their comments in the form of audio recordings to be included in the podcast. I was thrilled by the very idea and had to participate, so you’ll hear my voice too.
The Guardian Books podcasts are thought-provoking and stimulating, with a great editorial panel that knows how to maintain the listeners’ interest throughout. I am looking forward to next week’s podcast which will be about books that make us feel good (and obviously, those that make us feel the opposite).
