BookD offers a fascinating perspective into the world of publishing. Listen to authors discuss their inspiration behind their books, and hear the story of how these books were transformed from the initial concept. Tune in every other week for conversations with the stars of literature, art, film, music, science and politics. In this episode of 'BookD' we talk to Fern Britton about her debut novel and her expectations of author life, especially, when writing for such a competitive book genre. Some alternative modern romantics include David Levithan, author of 'The Lover's Dictionary' and why he thinks meeting online conjurs up similarities to the age old forgotten act of penmenship during the letter writing era to a potential lover. Mr Darcy, Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens and Tony Parsons are also thrown into the mix for this particular episode where the colour pink, men called Brad and cheesy one-liners are strictly forbidden!
