Stewart Lee & Dave Haslam

Comedian Stewart Lee and DJ author Dave Haslam choose a favourite book to discuss with Harriett Gilbert

The comedian Stewart Lee chooses his favourite good read to discuss with fellow guest DJ and author Dave Haslam and presenter Harriett Gilbert. He chooses Lint by Steve Aylett, the spoof biography of a science fiction writer which has him chuckling in studio as he reads bits to his fellow readers, while Dave has picked The Lonely City by Olivia Laing, an account of artistic life in 80s New York. Harriett's choice is Reading Allowed, a warm sometimes passionate tribute to our public libraries by Chris Paling.
