Richard Fairmont on Writers' Words

May 22, 2011

When most of us are having trouble find the right words to make sense of the world, we turn to writers. They usually let their books do the talking, but occasionally we get to hear it straight from the authors themselves. Richard Fairmont recently produced a set of CDs for the BBC that include rare recordings of the prominent writers. They're called "The Spoken Word: British Writers" and "The Spoken Word: American Writers." Fairmont tells Steve Paulson all about it.
