Night Waves - Industrial Revolution, Yinka Shonibare, Aleksandar Hemon, Alice Rawsthorn
Anne McElvoy talks to celebrated Balkan novelist and essayist Aleksandar Hemon.
In Night Waves Anne McElvoy talks to Aleksandar Hemon -- the Bosnian- born writer who some have been comparing to Nabokov and Conrad. His latest work, The Book of My Lives, is his first venture into non-fiction and it combines the feel of a fractured autobiography with a meditation on the healing power of words. There'll also be a review of the British Nigerian artist, Yinka Shonibare's new show, a discussion of a challenging new history of the Industrial Revolution and Alice Rawsthorn will be explaining why she believes good design and a good life should always go together.
