Colm Toibin on writing, part two

This guy’s great, even when he says things like ‘I’m against story’ – at least it makes you stop to consider what ‘story’ is. He also says ‘finish what you start’, which is the best advice you could ever hear. If you haven’t listened to his podcast, listed here on 28 January, do try to get round to it.
