Tracey Emin discusses her new exhibition; Lebanese Canadian writer Rawi Hage talks about his new novel and Horatio Clare reviews the film Sleep Furiously.

Tracey Emin discusses her new exhibition of drawings, neon, sewn work and sculpture as well as an animation made up of drawings of a woman masturbating.

Lebanese Canadian writer Rawi Hage won the IMPAC award for his debut novel De Niro's Game. He discusses his new book, Cockroach, which tells the story of a Middle Eastern immigrant to Canada: a misanthropic thief rescued from a suicide attempt who believes he is half-human, half-insect.

Horatio Clare reviews Sleep Furiously, the debut feature of Gideon Koppel. Set in a small farming community in mid-Wales, the film observes the rhythms of country life, with a soundtrack by Aphex Twin.

Performance artist Ansuman Biswas explains what he will be doing as Manchester Museum's first hermit in residence.
