Guests: Salman Rushdie, Alexandra Fuller, Ingrid Croce
It’s another edition of Radio Times in Review, our new weekly feature where we dig into our archives and rediscover some of the best conversations from Radio Times’ past. First up, we listen to Marty’s conversation with writer SALMAN RUSHDIE, who joined Marty in 2013 to discuss Joseph Anton: A Memoir. The book recounts his nine years in hiding after then-Supreme Leader of Iran, Ayatollah Khomeini, has issued a fatwa against the acclaimed novelist. Then, we’ll revisit Marty’s interview with author ALEXANDRA FULLER. Her award-winning memoir Don’t Let’s Go to the Dogs Tonight: An African Childhood will be reissued as a Picador Classic this year. She had joined Marty is 2011 to discuss the follow up to that book called Cocktail Hour Under the Tree of Forgetfulness, which further explores her family and their time living in Africa during the Rhodesian Bush War. Lastly, we’ll hear Marty’s 2012 discussion with INGRID CROCE, widow of the late Jim Croce. The revered singer/songwriter would have turned 72 last week. She had joined Marty following the publication of her book about her late husband, I Got A Name: The Jim Croce Story, which she co-authored with her current husband.
