We are very happy to introduce A Phone Call From Paul, Literary Hub’s weekly podcast, in which the inimitable Paul Holdengraber telephones a friend and sees what they’re up to.
In episode one, Paul caught up with Neil Gaiman over the summer (before he became a new father!) to talk life, death, and the work of Dennis Potter.
Read works mentioned in this podcast:
The Book of My Enemy Has Been Remaindered, by Clive James
Japanese Maple, by Clive James
Part two with Neil Gaiman: Bee keeping, fatherhood, and magic.
Music by Kurt Feldman.
