Stone Blind

Rich talks to former stand up and now world renowned best selling author Natalie Haynes about her absolutely brilliant book “Stone Blind” (sadly not about stone clearing) and why the Greek gods make more sense of the world, reimagining Greek myth from the perspective of the maltreated female characters, what makes a monster, why it's fun to write Perseus as an idiot, the Pythonesque nature of the classics and why focusing on Judi Bowker in the bath in Clash of the Titans was probably the wrong way to go.

Plus find out where Stone Blind and Can I Have My Ball Back meet and which of us had to sign the most copies in advance. Plus what it's like to get Margaret Atwood's seal of approval.
