The LRB Podcast

By The London Review of Books

On the LRB Podcast you'll find recent (and not so recent) pieces read by the author; our 'Close Reading’ series, in which Seamus Perry and Mark Ford consider 20th century poets through the lens of the pieces written about them in the LRB; and a range of other conversations on topics and writers covered in the paper.
