Appearing on ‘A Good Read’
The other day I appeared on BBC Radio 4’s programme ‘A Good Read’, where three people suggest books for the others to read and then you all sit around and discuss them. It was great fun, although the other panellist didn’t think much of my book. After the programme I got two emails. One from someone picking me up on my grammar: “while you obviously no nothing about gerunds or gerundives – where verbs act as nouns – and your saying “him learning about …” – when, obviously you should have been saying “HIS learning about …”, and the other from someone whose father had known John Stewart Collis, the author of my book choice. Anyway, here it is, I hope you enjoy it.
