The second in our series of documentary shorts goes out today on BBC Radio Kent!
This week we talk to Canterbury author Andrew McGuinness about his debut novel. Against the backdrop of a fictionalised version of Canterbury, the book’s narrator (Ben Tippet) stands trial accused of arson and manslaughter. From his prison cell he muses about everything from his transsexual uncle, to his love of David Bowie; from his artistic delusions of grandeur, to whether or not he really did cause a man’s death.
You can listen by tuning into Dominic King’s show from 4pm on BBC Radio Kent. Those of you without a radio can make use of the handy link below:
If you like the sound of Andrew’s book, you can order it from Amazon (or you can avoid grumpy postmen and support your local bookshop!)
Readers may also be pleased to learn that Andrew’s pet dog, Tom, maintains a regular blog (yes you read that correctly) which contains all Andrew’s latest news (presumably overheard during walkies) It can be found here
Our thanks to Andrew
