Marlon James on his new book Black Leopard Red Wolf

The Jamaican literary star Marlon James talks about his new book Black Leopard Red Wolf, which has been described as an 'African Game of Thrones'.
Pakistani-American poet Fatimah Asghar talks about writing the quirky and comic Emmy-nominated web TV series Brown Girls. Lebanese director Nadine Labaki talks about her latest, and Oscar nominated, film Capernaum about Syrian street kids in Beirut. The British actor turned director Stephen Merchant tells us how he responded to Dwayne Johnson (The Rock) wanting him to direct Fighting With My Family set in the world of WWE. And the queen of cool sensuality Charlotte Rampling gives us her insight into acting with minimal dialogue, and there’s uplifting music from Seun Kuti.

Nikki is joined in the studio by the Israeli writer Ayalet Gundar Goshen to talk about her new novel Liar, where one mistake spawned a thousand ripples, and the Eurovision fan and cultural critic William Lee Adams.
