Ian McMillan is joined by Booker Prize-winning novelist Kazuo Ishiguro and best-selling jazz singer Stacey Kent to discuss their musical collaboration. The author has contributed lyrics to four songs on Stacey's latest album Breakfast on the Morning Train, one of which she performs in the studio.
On The Verb this week Ian McMillan talks to Australian novelist Julia Leigh who shares her current unpublished work in progress with the show and talks about her latest novel Disquiet, an unsettling read set in a forbidding French chateau where a mother and her two children take refuge. Also on the programme, there's performance from singer songwriter Baby Dee and poet Simon Barraclough reads from his debut collection. Ian is also joined by writer and critic Iain Sinclair to celebrate the work of the poet John Riley who died thirty years ago this year.
