It’s episode 108 with Paul Tudor Owen author of the excellent New York based novel – The Weighing Of The Heart. Paul tells me about his long and bumpy road to publication and how his work as a journalist influences his writing.
Paul is a respected journalist, having worked for The Guardian for fifteen years, with three of those spent as their deputy head of US news in New York, time which greatly inspired and informed Paul’s debut novel – The Weighing Of The Heart. He also co-wrote and co-edited The Wire Re-Up, the popular book about David Simon’s classic HBO series. He grew up in Manchester and lives and works in London. The Weighing of The Heart is out right now, published by friends of the show, Obliterati Press and available everywhere you can find good books.
