Samira Ahmed talks to Professor Diane Roberts about the news that 'To Kill A Mockingbird' author Harper Lee is to publish a second novel.
William Nicholson wrote 'Shadowlands', the screenplay for 'Gladiator' and the acclaimed children's book 'The Wind Singer'. His latest novel for adults, 'The Lovers of Amherst', tells the story of the brother of the great American poet Emily Dickinson and his passionate adulterous love affair with a beautiful woman half his age.
Australian writer Tim Winton's book The Turning, a series of stories set in a coastal community, has now been turned into a film in which each story has been interpreted by a different director. Australian novelist Helen Fitzgerald reviews the film whose cast includes Cate Blanchett and Hugo Weaving.
South African artist Marlene Dumas discusses her dark and often sexually explicit paintings as a major new retrospective of her work opens at London's Tate Modern.
