Marina Lewycka, A Posthumous Book by Ernest Hemingway, and the Work of Franz Kafka
Mariella Frostrup talks to Marina Lewycka, whose spectacular debut at the age of 58 was the bestselling A Short History of Tractors in Ukrainian. She explains why she's turned her attention from tractors to adhesives (as well as old age, relationships and the Arab-Israeli question) in her new novel We Are All Made of Glue.
There's news from Andrew Purcell in New York of a surprise posthumous book by Ernest Hemingway - his Paris memoirs have been published in a new version by the author's grandson.
And Lawrence Norfolk joins Mariella to give a novelist's-eye view of the strange and wonderful work of Franz Kafka, three of whose best-known books have been reissued in new translations.
