Asterisks | Alternatives - with Mark Fiddes
Show Notes

Stop polishing that halo for a moment and listen to this! It's Mark Fiddes reading from his Live Cannon collection *Other Saints Are Available - a series of vivid and memorable footnotes to an increasingly polarised world... All via men roaring into flame from the neck up,  the haircuts of Burnley defenders, brash parakeets and much more.

And what do you do, as a poetry lover, when you just can't face reading another poem? Read something about poetry of course. Peter barges through Nine Gates: Entering the Mind of Poetry essays by the fine US poet Jane Hirshfield -- while Robin entertains 'The Hatred of Poetry' by Ben Lerner.
