Fantastic literary events now available in your living room

I go to many London readings, but no other has Damian, the consummate salonniere, drawing out the writers and peppering them with provocative questions in the most mellifluous accent. And now I can revisit them to catch what I missed while I was laughing, or just thinking hard.

Couldn't ask for better!

If you weren't one of the early birds who were lucky enough to get the worm and get into one of these, this is a perfect substitute. Although nothing beats being there in person, these podcasts are really great so you can see what you missed out/are missing out on or to replay the night in your head! It doesn't matter if you haven't heard of some of these authors (I sincerely hope that's not the case), you'll still enjoy these, especially with the ever-so-charming Damian Barr! Give these a go!

Mr Barr goes from strength to strength

I've been lucky enough to attend some of Damian's brilliant salons but have missed a greater number. The atmosphere at the readings is always great - a heady mix of intellectual stimulation, witty banter and gin! - so I wondered how the salons would translate into audio material. Listening to them actually feels like a one-to-one (one-to-two) audience with the writer and Damian: you forget that it's not happening in real time and that there were other people there (apart from audience chuckles). They are intimate, illuminating and always provide an answer to 'what shall i read next?'.
I'm halfway through the ones I missed and looking forward to the other half, which I'll probably consume in one greedy sitting.
