Radio 4 Open Book

Look! Here! Is! Another! Photograph!

NPG x125841; Mariella Frostrup by Trevor Leighton

It’s Mariella Frostrup’s head floating (coquettishly) through space. Don’t worry. It’s art. In real life she remains attached to her body. I know this because I met her the other day to record Open Book for Radio 4. I was horribly sleep-deprived and utterly useless. Fortunately I was interviewed alongside Clare Allan – author of the extraordinary Poppy Shakespeare – who proved ample erudite enough for the both of us.

If you click on one of Mariella’s dimples you’ll be directed to the clip.
