Kate Mosse

Sunday 30 April 2006 12:00-13:00 (Radio 3)

Michael Berkeley meets the writer Kate Mosse, whose most recent book, the medieval thriller Labyrinth, has just received the public vote for "best read on the Richard and Judy Bookclub", and has shot into the best-seller league. A familiar voice on Radio 4's literary programmes, Kate Mosse is passionate about encouraging new writers, and also about music. Her choices today include a Bach Brandenburg Concerto, the prelude to Wagner's Parsifal, Walton's Belshazzar's Feast, and Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony.

Duration:

1 hour
