Books on Tyne: Larkinland with Jonathan Tulloch £3

Join Jonathan Tulloch in a hilarious, heart-breaking tour of Larkinland. Walk the streets of Larkin’s poetry, meet some of his memorable characters, watch love threaten to bloom. Known for his number one Geordie hit, The Season Ticket, Tulloch’s new novel turns to love and books and bicycle clips in 1950s Hull. A consummate performer of his own work, expect gut laughter and much heart wrenching.  ‘Rarely have I heard anyone talk so movingly about literature as Jonathan Tulloch’ Open Book Radio 4.
