Gavin Francis and Esa Aldegheri

In collaboration with Edinburgh's International Book Festival, six writers define what 'freedom' means to them. Today, real-life couple Gavin Francis and Esa Aldegheri.

Radio 4 presents 'The Freedom Papers' in collaboration with Edinburgh International Book Festival. It's a pivotal point in our modern history in terms of political uncertainty and challenges to social justice. This motivated Edinburgh's International Book Festival to commission 51 writers to explore ideas related to freedom. In a one-off Book of the Week, we showcase ten very different perspectives on freedom from some of the world's most exciting literary voices, including Sandip Roy, Nicola Davies, Rory Maclean, Kapka Kassabova and Gavin Francis.

Producer: Victoria McArthur
Authors: Gavin Francis and Esa Aldegheri.
