The Birdcage

Once, we decided to go west. We discovered life was peaceful, the air free, we could learn and teach and so forth. We had such fun we decided to attempt a semi-regular fixture in the company of one of our Bristol buddies, NIKESH SHUKLA. First up, we were joined by PATRICK NESS, author of the bestselling 'Chaos Walking' trilogy, who introduced us to his latest novel, 'The Crane Wife', and MATT HAIG, the extraordinary mind behind 'The Radleys', 'The Last Family In England' and 'The Humans' - if you can think of a smarter literary pairing, we'll eat your comedy sombrero. There was also delightful, elegant, soulful music from ELDER ISLAND.
