I'm going to be on BBCR4's Open Book on Sunday 25th, talking about 'Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops.' They'll also have some actors reading out quotes from the book [exciting!]. It's on at 4:00pm [GMT] and you'll be able to stream it live over here http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio4/ - that streaming should work worldwide. [It'll be available for UK residents on iplayer afterwards]


  1. Unfortunately I won't be able to listen live Jen but I'll definitely be i playering it! Best of luck I'm sure you'll be fab x

  2. I am sure I will hit the snooze button when the alarm goes off in the middle of the night since I am westcoast US but I will set the alarm to listen.
    On another thought I am sure you never received a rejection letter like this one
    It is almost poetry itself.

  3. Allison - sorry, there was some confusion. I am recording for BBCR4 today, but it's for Sunday's show, so listen in then instead, same time :) xxx

  4. Just figured that out...*lol*. but IIt was interesting listening to last weeks program on Dodie Smith. I'll tune in again and it's actually not the middle of the night for me. I shift back and forth between London, Oregon, and Japan timewise so I am always trying to shift the wrong direction on the clock. Can't wait to hear you!

  5. I just heard Mariella mentioning something and it sounded so much like your book - yippee! I hope you have fun!

  6. She did mention it at the end of the last show :) interview was a lot of fun, and they had actors reading out parts of the book which was very surreal but lovely! x
