In their own words...


Have you seen the BBC archive collection of British novelists "in their own words"?

Available are sound files of interviews from writers like Virginia Woolf, Christopher Isherwood, Iris Murdock and even Tolkien. Aside from hearing each writers voice, each clip is accompanied with information about the writer, topic of the interview, year etc. What a wonderful resource!

Oh Virginia, you sound so solem, serious and knowledgeable, I would believe anything said in that wonderful voice.

  1. Virginia and Iris Murdoch both, I'd believe with those wonderful voices. Fantastic.
