Twice a week or so, the London Review Bookshop becomes a miniature auditorium in which authors talk about and read from their work, meet their readers and engage in lively debate about the burning topics of the day. Fortunately, for those of you who weren't able to make it to one of our talks, were able to make it but couldn't get a ticket, or did in fact make it but weren't paying attention and want to listen again, we make a recording of everything that happens. So now you can hear Alan Bennett, Hilary Mantel, Iain Sinclair, Jarvis Cocker, Jenny Diski, Patti Smith (yes, she sings) and many, many more, wherever, and whenever you like.

Great stuff

Very good

Modern Nature

Good podcast ruined by a member of the audience continually ‘um-img’ In agreement with comments being made about Jarman. The final comment by Keith Collins is not relevant to Jarman and the audience’s embarrassment can be sensed. Maybe a good sound engineer monitoring the recording would have felt with the um’s and editor should be employed to tidy the finished article. A superb collection on anecdotes and interesting information ruined by poor production.

A treasure trove

A treasure trove of thoughtful, intelligent, amusing and enriching talks. You will feel a little smarter and lot better informed after a listen.
