For those who can access th site, biography author Richard Marson was interviewed on today's edition of Radio 4's Media Show. Available as podcast or stream at http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b00dv9hq
Not had a chacne to listen to it myself yet...
It was an interesting interview. (I haven't yet downloaded the latest Radio Free Skaro, which also interviews Marson.)
Marson points out that the book was sent to a single outlet -- specifically The Guardian
-- and every other outlet is riffing on the few things that the Guardian
wrote about in their review. (However, the SFX
review was out before the Guardian
's review, so I'm puzzled on that score.)
Marson comes across as a bit naive. He argues that his book is a balanced look at JNT's life and that it's unfair that people are focused solely on the salacious chapter of a book they haven't even read. However, I'm not sure why
he would expect otherwise. For good or ill, people like dirt.
