Ricky's Hand

Richard talks to music critic, sitcom and movie writer and novelist David Quantick about his fun sci-fi novel about a man who wakes up with someone else's hand, Ricky's Hand. They chat about David's career and his tentative steps towards becoming a novelist and how people expect you to stay in your lane. Plus the inspiration for this extraordinary story and whether you need to worry too much about logistics when writing about a high concept. Also having an unlikeable protagonist and whether the anonymity of a writer is a good or bad thing. Plus some good chat about Snodgrass versus Yesterday!
