Talking Literature with Richard E. Grant
Watch an exclusive interview with Richard E. Grant, as he answers questions put to him by our expert OU academics Dr Joanne Reardon and Professor Nicola J. Watson, on how reading books in the locations they were set brings places, people and history to life.
What was it like to experience for real the places described in the books he was reading? What’s his personal perspective on walking in the footsteps of the writers and characters whose lives and stories inhabit the places he visited? Reflecting on his adventures from Victoria Hislop's Spain during the Civil War to Scott Fitzgerald’s French Riviera, Richard reveals how these books deepened his experience of places he visited and how he hopes it will inspire others to follow him.
