Gavin Francis
In this episode of Bookmarked Ryan Van Winkle introduces four interviews that take us all over the world:
  • Gavin Francis (pictured right), author of Empire Antarctica, talks about ice, silence and Emperor Penguins;
  • We visit the Erbil Literature Festival in Kurdistan to hear from young Iraqi writer Sabrin Qadi and her Scottish counterpart Krystelle Bamford;
  • Closer to home, we speak to Glasgow crime author Caro Ramsay about her new book The Blood of Crows, which The Guardian called a "bleak, black and brilliant" read.
