Claudia Winkleman rounds up the week's arts action.

Fans of Glen David Gold's Carter Beats the Devil have been waiting since 2001 for his new novel. He talks about his new book, Sunnyside, which recreates the wild, early days of Hollywood and charts Charlie Chaplin's dramatic rise from rags to riches. It's also the time of the First World War, the Russian Revolution and a new superpower called America. Find out if the book is another page turner, when Claudia delivers her verdict.

This week's show also features the poet Benjamin Zephaniah, choreographer Matthew Bourne, and Ricky Gervais talks about his next film Cemetery Junction.
