Books podcast: Treasure palaces – Spectator.co.uk (blog)
In this weekâ€™s books podcast I talk about Treasure Palaces with its editor Maggie Fergusson. This is a remarkable collection of essays by writers on revisiting museums that have meant something special to them. The book has a stellar cast-list â€” Alice Oswald, Julian Barnes, Andrew Motion, Margaret Drabble, Roddy Doyle, William Boyd and Ali Smith among them â€” and the essays bring something personal and unexpected out of each. Maggie talks about how she snagged the big names â€”and what their choices had to say.
