I’m on BBC World Service’s “The Arts Hour” on Sunday July 30th

I’ll be appearing on the BBC World Service’s radio show “The Arts Hour” on Sunday July 30th. (This is my second appearance; the first was on New Year’s Day this year.) It airs several times between Sunday and next Tuesday, and will be available on iPlayer anytime after the first broadcast. Unlike BBC TV programs, the radio stuff is available globally, so you can listen no matter where you are. The episode page with all the info you need is here.

I’m on for the full hour with fellow guest Nigerian horror writer Nuzo Onoh — her latest novel, The Sleepless, is brilliant, and you should read it — and host Nikki Bedi. The show was recorded on Wednesday, so I can tell you that we’ll be talking about Dunkirk, The Beguiled, The Big Sick, and lots of other artsy stuff. I hope you’ll tune in, and I hope you enjoy it!

Onoh’s The Sleepless:

Good fun, thanks. It’s a pity the format only really allows for the guests to answer individual questions from the host, rather than getting a discussion started.

As with the previous episode I did, we recorded a lot more — including some discussion — than ended up on air.

Now that I have my toe in the door at the BBC, maybe I’ll work my way up to a program where I can talk more!
