In the author's own voice
Lytton Strachey and Virginia Woolf
as snapped by Lady Ottoline Morrell
Now available on the BBC website is their valuable archive of interviews with key British authors. Most exciting for me are the podcasts featuring Virginia Woolf (it's funny and quaint the way she pronounces 'mysterious' - messTEErious), John Berger and Zadie Smith (is it me or does the interviewer get slightly irritated by her coyness/self-effacement?). I can't wait to explore the others. What's more, it's all FREE.
