Radio Four "In Our Time"

Melvyn Bragg's show this week is on Harriet Beecher Stowe.

Today 9am. I've met all three academic contributors. And one of them is rather beloved to me. Sending her BIG HUGS!

Of course SHE was a STAR, MB was an ass and I am the proudest 'sis' in the world. Go CMB!

I've only read Uncle Tom's Cabin - are you a fan? It's certainly an interesting book - I found it hard not to find the melodrama amusing but it felt pretty radical in many ways.

Well, its a sentimental novel (as in its genre) so it has rather specific style issues that shape its treatment of the issues.

You should listen to the prog. Even though MB was a (lot) of an arse. Especially given that his knowledge basically came from his researchers asking the contributors for everything they know so MB gets a script and the contributors have to work on their wits live.
