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]

We couldn’t do it without you, and that’s the truth. You really do keep us on the air.
If you value truly independent broadcasting – not beholden to special interest groups, the curse of political correctness or some nefarious media baron – then please support us now.
Here are our goals…
Goal #1: We Go Weekly!
We’d love to be with you more often than once a month. But every show needs a lot of time to prepare… Our first goal is to produce a top-quality show every week – please help us get there!
Goal #2: We Go Video!
Wouldn’t it be nice to see our guests? Video will add a new dimension to what we do (and yes, we’ll always have top-quality audio available, too).
Goal #3: We Go On The Road!
Help LAD get off our tushies and produce some of the best location shows you’ve ever heard. We can do it – with your help!
You can cancel at any time (but we hope you won’t!). And thank you – your kind patronage truly makes all the difference.
