Dodie Smith and Weird Things – Open Book

This week’s edition of Open Book on Radio 4 had an interesting chat about Dodie Smith – slightly odd because her biographer Valerie Grove was one of the guests and she really doesn’t seem to like Dodie very much, maybe it’s a knock-on effect of too much time spent studying her extensive journals. Happily Heidi Thomas, who adapted I Capture The Castle for cinema, took a rather more positive view. Either way, it’s nice to see some attention being paid to her life and books.

This week’s Open Book also has one of my authors, as Jen Campbell author of Weird Things Customers Say in Bookshops will be on the show.
