Richard talks to author and academic Katherine Rundell about her beautifully written, passionate and informative biography of the poet John Donne.

How much do we know about this incredible poet and sermon writer, was he the womaniser that his poems make him out to be, how brutal was existence 400 years ago, did he write all of the poems ascribed to him and most importantly did John Donne ever see a ghost? Plus was John Donne a misogynist and does Katherine do a cartwheel every morning.
