Throughout November every Sunday from midday you can hear an hour of music curated by an author in Paperback Writers. And this Sunday it's the turn of Oliver Jeffers, the award winning artist, illustrator, and author of children's picture books including, Lost and Found, The Incredible Book Eating Boy and Stuck..

Oliver has chosen the music that has marked significant milestones in his life, so you can sit back and travel with him as a young lad in Northern Ireland, around Australia and to New York, where he now lives and recorded the show for us.

Like many of us, Oliver found his musical taste in various places, from his parents, friends and from digging deeper into the music of artists he loves. Like the writers that preceded him, Oliver now shares his absolute passion for music with the 6 Music listeners.
