The Word Café Episode 6

Co-presenter of the 'Lockdown Pods' Matt Harvey keeps us on our toes with his streaker poem warming us up for poets Rachael Clyne and Nick Degg.     On book launch today we have renowned poet George Szirtes reading from his new book "Fresh Out of the Sky."  A book of songs, dreams, laments, narratives and comedies about major life-changes involving country, identity and belonging. It is about perpetually standing at the edge of change, anticipating it, reflecting on it and dreaming about it.   At the top of the hour we have, on a train, The Professor of Whimsy himself, Mr Robert Garnham.  Our last port of call is with poet Crysse Morrison in Frome, Somerset.  I said it on the programme and I will say it again, Crysse needs to get on the Radio 4 comedy slot at 6.30pm.  A super programme, the penultimate of the lockdown pods.
