Episode 78: Into many a green valley drifts the appalling snow

Download this episode

Perry and David talk about a bunch of recent literary awards and then go on to discuss the books they’ve read recently, which cover the range from an entertaining children’s book to a confronting Booker Prize winner. And in the middle, a lot of snow.

Into many a green valley
Drifts the appalling snow.
Time breaks the threaded dances
And the diver’s brilliant bow.

W. H. Auden
