Is This OK?

Richard talks to former music journalist Harriet Gibsone about her fascinating and funny memoir of obsession, growing up on the internet, early menopause and fantasies about Chris Martin. They discuss parasocial relationships from both sides of the equation, spying on your neighbours, politely cyber stalking a stranger on the bus, the insecurities that plague Harriet and most of us, how Deliciously Ella's experience of birth may not be universal, how searing honesty about your failings is useful to express and how all books basically appeal to the voyeur inside us all.
