Richard goes all transAtlantic to chat to legendary US stand up, Steven Wright about his extraordinary novel, Harold. The chat includes allusions to the Venerable Bede, how the novel started on Twitter and was written on a phone, deciding to write a book that takes place in a day entirely inside a seven-year-old's head, whether anachronisms matter in a book like this, how no one but Wright can do just to his own material, whether we're ever going to be hit with the sound from the Big Bang, a little surprise awaiting you in the audiobook, meeting Kurt Vonnegut and a glimpse into how Wright's extraordinary brain works. A rich and rambling chat with an incredible man with a book you'll need to read several times and never in one sitting.
