Cerys takes over the lunchtime show on 6 Music and is joined by writer Iain Banks, who talks about his new novel Transition.
Iain Banks' novels have attracted the attention of filmmakers and broadcasters. The BBC successfully adapted his 1992 novel, The Crow Road, into a four-part television series and Espedair Street (1987) was produced as a BBC Radio 4 Series, for which Banks wrote the accompanying music and lyrics. In 1993 he was acknowledged as one of the Best of Young British Writers. In 1996 his number one bestseller, The Crow Road, was adapted for television. Iain Banks won Celebrity Mastermind in 2005 with his specialist subject 'malt whisky and the distilleries of Scotland'.
