Internationally renowned percussionist Dame Evelyn Glennie's rather surprising choice of a good read is Napoleon Hill's best-selling self-improvement book 'Think and Grow Rich' . First published in 1937, it's a classic of the genre and still has wide appeal to the book-buying public. Sarah Churchwell is a journalist and academic, Professor of American Literature at the University of East Anglia. She recommends Henry James' classic 'The Ambassadors'. A darkly comic story about the seductive charms of Europe and learning to 'live all you can', it's one of James' best-loved novels. Harriett's choice is 'Curious' by the comic actress Rebecca Front. It's a collection of beautifully-observed stories about life's absurdities, funny, thoughtful and touching. Producer...Mary Ward-Lowery.
In a time where we're all threatened by a rhetoric of hate from the people in power; A Gay And A NonGay challenges many of our differences head on and promises that no matter who you are, or what you're into (Bruce Springsteen or Britney), love is love and gay and nongays can be friends. </div><div><br></div><div>An independent podcast from James Barr (@imjamesbarr) and Dan Hudson (@DanHudson).
