Literary Loitering 99 - Salinger Versus Predator

Feb 15, 11:57 PM

Don your leather jackets, wheel out your tricycles, and join Graham, Sarah and Rob for another anarchic slow-ride through arts, books and culture.

Kicking things off this week, yet another former member of Donald Trump’s staff has released a tell-all book - which is more proof that if you want a book deal in the U.S., you should get a job in the White House. In other news, we find out the truth about J. D. Salinger’s unpublished works, E. L. James announces a “sexy” new book, and we marvel at the rise of a new sub-genre of detective fiction called cozy mysteries - which may sometimes feature cats as the heroes. 

After that it’s Sarah’s turn to talk about her Christmas book, which is Cunk On Everything: The Encyclepedia Philomena by Philomena Cunk and Jason Hazeley. Then it’s time for a quiz about old dialect words and phrases from around the UK … what could go wrong?
