Don Johnson became a household name through his role as shiny suited Miami police officer Sonny Crockett in Miami Vice. He discusses the art of the comeback as he stars alongside Sam Shepherd in new film Cold in July. Novelist Carys Bray discusses her own devout Mormon upbringing in the North-West of England which lies at the heart of her debut novel A Song For Issy Bradley. As new poems are discovered by Nobel Prize-winning Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, we speak to his acclaimed biographer Adam Feinstein about their significance. Plus we discuss why some established authors are choosing to self-publish their work with writer Kate Pullinger and Cathy Rentzenbrink of the Bookseller.
