Literary Landscapes - Cornwall with Patrick Gale
Literary Landscapes - Cornwall
Open Book's summer series on Literary Landscapes continues at the furthest Western edge of the United Kingdom, Land's End in Cornwall. With the Atlantic waves encroaching on both sides, it's one of wildest and most exposed areas in the country and has inspired many of our great writers including Daphne Du Maurier.
Open Book's literary guide to this beautifully powerful and rugged terrain is Patrick Gale, one of the county's foremost and prolific contemporary novelists. Born in the Isle of Wight, Patrick has been based in Cornwall since the late 1980s and lives on a working farm in Land's End, with unparalleled views of the outer edge of the landscape he's so often chosen as his setting.
Producer: Hilary Dunn.
