Simon Parkes has audio treasures aplenty this week. There's Michael Palin on Ernest Hemingway; Iain Sinclair on W.G. Sebald, oh! And manicured Norfolk landscapes; Nayantara Seghal on her uncle, Jawaharlal Nehru and children's writer Philip Ardagh on beards. Stubbly or otherwise. What more could you want? Well a few other radio morsels, I feel sure.
