Ron Arad - artist, architect and designer - shows John Wilson round his latest installation, Curtain Call, a new 360-degree interactive installation at the Roundhouse in London. Arad has responded to the large circular Main Space by creating a curtain made of 5,600 silicon rods suspended from an 18-metre-diameter ring - and has invited artists and musicians to create art works for it.

Hari Kunzru's new novel Gods Without Men is set in a remote town in the Californian desert. He discusses the way his move to America has changed the language of his writing, and why he wanted to write about the difficulties of living with an autistic child.

A new documentary film The Referees focuses on the men with the whistle in the Euro 2008 football championships. Sports writer Jim White reviews.
