"Start the Week" this Monday, 9am

Just to let you know I'll be talking about Horizon Review on "Start the Week" this Monday, 20th October - at 9am, if you're ever up that early on a Monday! - which is BBC Radio 4's flagship arts programme.

The other guests with me this Monday are Rupert Goold, theatre director - who's currently directing Pete Postlethwaite in King Lear, along with Pirandello's Six Characters in Search of an Audience at the Gielgud Theatre, Pinter at the Duke of York AND Oliver! at the Theatre Royal Drury Lane - also Duncan Wu, writer and biographer (his most recent work is a biography of William Hazlitt) and Jackie Wullschlager, chief art critic for the Financial Times, who's just written a comprehensive tome on the Russian emigré artist Chagall.

If you miss it on Monday, "Start the Week" should be available for about a week using the Listen Again facility on the BBC Radio 4 website.

I'll be visiting the Poetry Library at the South Bank afterwards, having lunch with poet, critic and creative writing tutor George Ttoouli at the Poetry Society, and generally swanning about London in search of lattés and good poetry.

Ah, the life of a literary editor ...

That's so great!! Really looking forward to it, Andrew Marr seems like such a lovely wee guy!

Alas, the infamous Andrew Marr is apparently off filming somewhere this week, so there's a substitute presenter - Tom Sutcliffe? - who I'm sure will be just as fabulous, though I would have liked to meet AM.

Another time, no doubt. ;)

He writes for The Independent doesn't he? Used to to TV now does all sorts.

Nice job Jane - you came across very well, and your laugh is so infectious too! Hope you have a great day and also best of luck with Camper Van Blues?

Well done! Loved it! I waggled my aerial and tuned in over m' breakfast. xx

Many thanks to you both!

I'm fair cream-crackered at the moment. Was up 21 hours yesterday and now I've got a Middle English translation class at 10am.

Blearh.

And my in-box is suddenly full of emails from people wanting to send work to Horizon or get me to do things for them.

Fame at last. Oh poo.
