Samantha Harvey Interview

(Matt Lincoln)

Listen to Full Episode 50:53
The Guardian says of Samantha Harvey's new book; " Dear Thief is written in the same key as [Leonard Cohen's 'Famous Blue Raincoat'] – a minor and melancholic one, which captures a heady, elegiac combination of eroticism and loss."

"With twenty six letters you can create anything you like - any person, any world, any place, any emotion.  And they are so potent, so powerful, and at the same time they're marks on the page and that's all.  There's nothing else to them." - Samantha Harvey
