Today I am delighted to bring you a conversation with one of my very favorite authors, Jasper Fforde, as we talk about the continuing adventures of one of fictions great heroines, Thursday Next in Fforde’s new novel, The Woman Who Died A Lot.
Maggie Linton talks to an expert on the Middle East and finds out who holds the purse strings on the world’s oil supply. Andrew Scott Cooper’s book is The Oil Kings: How the US, Iran and Saudi Arabia Changed the Balance of Power in the Middle East.
