7.1 Enrichment from reading
Here novelists talk about the importance of reading and how it enriches their work, but also about the influence of film.
As you’re listening to Louis de Bernières, Patricia Duncker, Tim Pears and Alex Garland, make a note of:
- what reading – or viewing – appears to be important for them
- how you think reading influences their writing
- how cinematic storytelling influences the way a novelist tells and structures a story.
