I've been spending quite a bit of time in the studio recently. Last month I recorded the audio-book of the heartbreaking First World War diaries of Charlie May, To Fight Alongside Friends. The hardback is released next month and it's an extremely moving first-hand account of a man in the trenches during the build-up to the Battle Of The Somme. This week I've been spending time with EM Forster, reading Damon Galgut's Arctic Summer - a fictional biography of the writer's experiences in the twelve years it took him to write A Passage To India. Next week, it's a Pat Barker double-header, as I'm recording both Life Class and Toby's Room. Phew. Good times. And great literature.
