Bill Paterson and Tom Chatfield
Actor Bill Paterson and tech philosopher Tom Chatfield talk about books they love with Harriett Gilbert. Works by Christopher Hitchens and Terry Pratchett are on the table.
Do you remember Longitude by Dava Sobel? Scots actor Bill Paterson does, and he still loves it. Terry Pratchett has been incredibly important to tech philosopher Tom Chatfield all his life, and he wants to share Small Gods from the Discworld series. Presenter Harriett Gilbert has been reading Mortality by Christopher Hitchens, his collection of essays about dying of cancer. All three read all three books, and the ensuing conversation is generous and reflective.
