Jarvis Cocker and Baxter Dury (Proustian madeleines and TV meetings)

Season 9, Ep. 14

Two brilliant songwriters, Jarvis Cocker and Baxter Dury, go head to head in a war of the words.


They talk about how their books came into being, holding on to things from childhood, their writing processes and recommend us some books they have read and enjoyed recently.


In the Book Off, they pit Haruki Murakami's "Hard Boiled Wonderland And The End Of The World" against "A Swim In A Pond In The Rain" by George Saunders, but which one win!?
