Ian McMillan talks to poet Kei Miller, whose first novel The Same Earth tells the story of a Jamaican village of Watersgate and the characters who live there, over a period of 50 years.

Ian also investigates the history and purpose of aphorisms, and there's a new story from novelist Will Ashon, about a man who lives in a hole.

Plus folk singer Julie Fowlis, who sings in Gaelic, performing in the studio.
