Andrew O'Hagan - Be Near MeWednesday 13 September 2006, 7 p.m. · 72 minutes
Sometimes as a writer it's as simple as that... Sometimes, you're so hankering to read a book that you have to write it yourself.
Andrew O’Hagan’s third novel Be Near Me dissects the class hatreds and personal flaws of a small Scottish parish and the English priest who arrives in it. A month after its publication, O’Hagan gave an expressive and moving reading of scenes from the book at the London Review Bookshop.
