Joseph O'Neill, Robin Wright, Jezebel, Match of the Day at 50 and Andrew Marr's Great Scots

Joseph O'Neill's previous novel Netherland received rapturous attention. His new book The Dog is a story of a New York Lawyer who accepts a job working for a rich college friend in Dubai, but he realises it's a very complicated role he's expected to play.

Robin Wright plays a version of herself in The Congress; a live action/cartoon crossover movie directed by Ari Folman (Waltz With Bashir). But where does the fantasy end and reality begin?

Jezebel is a comedy by the Dublin-based Rough Magic Theatre Company in which a couple try to spice up their sex-lives with an awkward threesome which has unforeseen consequences.
Match Of The Day is celebrating its 50th birthday and we've been watching a TV programme marking this anniversary.

Andrew Marr's Great Scots - Writers Who Shaped a Nation is his tribute to three writers who helped to create the modern Scottish identity through their work and lives.
