Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi
Today there’s another chance to hear the entire interview with author Geoff Dyer, who the Daily Telegraph has called “the best living writer in Britain”. And Zadie Smith believes “his prose is the equal of anyone in the country – a national treasure.” On the eve of publication of his fourth work of fiction, Jeff in Venice, Death in Varanasi, he spoke to Peter about growing up in working class britain… how one teacher made all the difference to him… getting sacked for his bad attitude… and that moment in your life when you realize you’re a writer.
Peter will be back from holiday next week, when our normal daily schedule will resume.[audio:ld/ld_297.mp3]
