Rachel Holmes is the Head of Literature at The South Bank Centre and an Orange Prize and Whitbread Award judge. In 1998 she became part of the launch team of Amazon.co.uk, and was Web Site Manager of the Amazon UK site until leaving in December 2002 to pursue a full-time writing career. Her first book, Scanty Particulars: The Life of Dr James Barry, was published in 2002, and her second, The Hottentot Venus, a biography of Saartjie Baartman, was published in 2007. She has appeared on Any Questions and Newsnight Review.
Interview went well apart from the site crashing a minute before being on air and so the start of the interview is silent for about a minute! Then I disconnected Rachel by mistake!
But heh you live and learn , next time it will be a bit more slick.
It was a great interview though and Rachel was excellent. Listen below and hear her talking about The London Literature Festival and the influence of technology on books.
