Fleabag's Phoebe Waller-Bridge on Star Wars, Andrew Sean Greer, Comic novels
Arts news, interviews and reviews. Phoebe Waller-Bridge on playing a female droid in the Star Wars franchise, plus Andrew Sean Greer on his Pulitzer Prize-winning novel Less.
Phoebe Waller-Bridge, writer and star of TV series Fleabag, discusses balancing performance and writing, and her latest role as L3, a female droid in the latest Star Wars episode, Solo.
Andrew Sean Greer has just won the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction for his comic novel Less, about a failed novelist who embarks on a trip round the world rather than attend his ex-lover's wedding. He discusses writing about gay marriage, ageing and why the win came as a surprise.
Following the announcement that the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for UK Comic Fiction is being withheld for the first time in its history, journalist and critic Arifa Akbar joins Andrew Sean Greer to discuss the current climate for writing a laugh-out-loud novel.
