I may not know much about classical music, but I know what I like.  And, unlike most radio appearances, when there's always the risk of having spent been forced to spend the previous  night sleeping in a small car on Dartmoor in January, leading to both sleep-deprived hysteria and a nasty chest infection, talking to Michael Berkeley on Private Passions was nothing but a pleasure.  As ever I sound like a pre-war BBC announcer, but here it is.  It's still one of the most enjoyable broadcasting experiences I've ever had.  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b040hw4f

This is my garden. Come in. Try not to laugh.

Rhapsody in Green: A Novelist in the Garden is Charlotte's forthcoming non-fiction book.  It's a portrait of tragic obsession: how a woman with a laughably tiny garden, no gardening knowledge and absurdly high hopes became slave to an urban jungle, where she grows over 100 things to eat. 

It is being published in September by Kyle Books; for more information see the link below, and look for it in your local independent bookshop...
