1. Guardian Live event with Ian McEwan

Guardian Live event with Ian McEwan

In this week’s podcast, Ian McEwan talks about his latest novel, Nutshell, a retelling of Hamlet but through the eyes of foetus. Elsinore is transported to London’s prosperous St John’s Wood, Gertrude is transformed into wine-quaffing mother-to-be Trudy and Claudius into Claude – an insufferable bore capable only of speaking in cliches. In a live event recorded at the Royal Geographical Society in London, McEwan talks to Mark Lawson about everything from the necessary art of hesitation to the risks of working for Hollywood, the challenges of finding a voice for an unborn character … and identity politics. Reading list Nutshell by Ian McEwan (Vintage)
