Tigers, Rats and Reading Dangerously - the BBC Radio Oxford Afternoon Bookclub

The bookclub on Monday was unashamedly about Father's Day and the inevitable approach of THE SUMMER. There was also a book about the ownership of cheese, which was as subversive a children's picture book as you will ever read, by the brilliant Alexis Deacon and Viviane Schwarz...

We talked about Andy Miller's riotously funny zero-tolerance approach to 'not having read the classics' in 'The Year of Reading Dangerously', Tom Moore's 'Gironimo' and duking it our with Suggs' book to be crowned 'finest music memoir of the year' is 'Live At The Brixton Academy' by Simon Parkes.

There is also a fine interview with Nick Harkaway ahead of our event with him on Wednesday June 11.

There was a few naughty moment and a lot more sniggering than usual (I have to say) during this particular show, and you can listen to it here until Monday June 16.

Fast forward to about 1 hour 8 minutes to listen to the show in its entirety - Nick Harkaway's interview is at 1 hour 35 minutes...
