I've never really felt compelled to write until very recently, as I've reflected more on my auntie's death last summer. Suddenly I find myself really wanting to commit the experience - her experience - to the page. It's quite surprised me. So that's what we talk about in this podcast. It's an intiguing area and one I hope you find interesting. We also, as usual, cover our favourite things in the last fortnight. I talk about the launch of the iPad 2 while Manuela Boyle looks back at World Book Night.
