The best of the world's arts, film, music and literature brought to you every day.

Presented by Anna McNamee.

On today's programme: we speak to Renée Fleming, one of the world's leading sopranos, about her performance in Verdi's Otello for The Met in New York. And we meet Guatemalan author Eduardo Halfon, whose latest book of short stories, The Polish Boxer, somewhat blurs the line between reality and fiction.

The Polish Boxer by Eduardo Halfon, published by Pushkin Press.
