Show Notes

In today's episode, Paul chats with the author Lynn Truss. 

Lynne comes from a working-class background and was grammar school educated. After university, she worked as a literary editor until mid-thirties, she then went freelance and started writing novels and radio plays alongside arts/books journalism.  

She was TV Critic of The Times and a sports columnist. In 2000, she gave up her contract with The Times when her sister died, and left sport behind. She returned to books/radio – then in 2003 came Eats, Shoots & Leaves, which was a surprise bestseller. She claims that punctuation hijacked her life for a few years, but she got back as quickly as she could to her normal fiction/stories/plays/radio comedies. The Constable Twitten mysteries came out of a radio series of 24 episodes called Inspector Steine: Lynne has kept the characters and setting (in Brighton in 1957), but the plots are new.
