In the first ever Book Review Show, Kirsty Wark is joined by guests including Germaine Greer, Daisy Goodwin, Denise Mina and John Mullan to discuss the state of women's literature. Topics include the shortlist for the Orange Prize and posthumous publications from Daphne Du Maurier and Beryl Bainbridge. There is also an interview with Lionel Shriver, the adaptation of whose 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' has just premiered at Cannes, and four of the UK's leading female writers - Fay Weldon, Joanne Harris, Lesley Pearse and Ruth Rendell - discuss whether sexism exists in the publishing industry, and whether the Orange Prize is still necessary in today's world.
