Established and thoroughly middle class, the Today show on BBC Radio 4 is a well respected and trusted radio program in the United Kingdom. In this episode host Edward Stourton discusses the concept of a flawed literary masterpiece with guest novelists William Boyd and A.L. Kennedy.
The audio clip is extracted from point 02:25:45 of the Today show, originally broadcast on 30th January 2009.
Audio transcript follows:
ES: A.L. Kennedy, would you care to give us a couple of your favourite flawed masterpieces?
ALK: Yeah, and you have to bear in mind as Mr Boyd said, it is about love. I mean, you can fall in love with somebody with ginger hair and you never thought you would, but their ginger hair is different.
ES: I can almost hear the emails from ginger haired people coming in at this point.
ALK: As an example. I love ginger haired people myself.
Thank you to Gingerism reader Tom Allender for the heads up.
