JEREMY BANX & RUTH THOMAS – Eating Peanuts and Watching Cilla Black
Joining Tom Jackson to discuss the postcards from their pasts are cartoonist Jeremy Banx (FT, Private Eye, New Statesman) and author Ruth Thomas (The Snow and the Works on the Northern Line, Things to Make and Mend). We head to the trippers’ haunts and bric-a-brac bazaars to consider the Bristol Superfreighter, bubble cars in La Plata, and Blackpool as margarine; we follow a sheep up the stairs, avoid a disaster at the Hungarian Circus and hear about a childhood correspondence with Tove Jansson. Plus memory, regret and the perils of going back. You know the sort of life we lead. Wish you were here?
