Radio 4: Listen Again... Book of the Week - Important, Listen Again is only available for 7 days from broadcast, so must listen to Mondays episode by end of Sunday, Tuesdays by end of Monday etc.

I brought his book today (in paperback), already on Chapter 6, which is highly unusual for me, as I rarely ever read books.
