This week Writer and Director Nick Hennegan is joined by Louisa Treger on her debut novel The Lodger - a biographical novel about author Dorothy Richardson, and a great London story.

 Dorothy was a peer of Virginia Woolf and the Bloomsbury Set, and pioneered the new style of fiction which became known as stream of consciousness. She was the lover of H. G. Wells, as well as a feminist and bisexual, at a time when this was extremely taboo.

 Louisa herself is an expert on Dorothy, having written her PhD about her – Louisa discovered lesser-known Dorothy while initially researching Virginia Woolf.

 Nick is also joined by The Saison Poetry Library's Assistant Librarian, Pascal O’Loughlin from London’s Southbank Centre to talk about a new, FREE, Poetry e-loan scheme.
