MIDNIGHT'S CHILDREN ON BBC RADIO
Quite often interesting things get posted on the internet between these newsletters and I have to make a list of them and hope that they have not been removed or expired before the next Ramayana: The Thread of Luminance newsletter.

Fortunately it's still available on the BBC's Radio 4 website and it is very good. I read the Man Booker Prize winning novel over a decade ago and the adaption by Ayeesha Menon was in keeping with Mr Rushdie's epic canvas of characters imbued with magical powers.
All seven episodes can still be listened to HERE
Don't forget there's more exclusive artwork on my blog and social media channels.
