  • Brilliant

    How come I have not found this podcast earlier? A serious conversation about books and some of my favourites here. How about ‘extinction’ by Thomas Bernhard for a future episode?

  • A total pleasure

    I just started listening to this, and I’m so happy to have access to an archive of passionate conversations between genuine book lovers. The hosts and guests read widely and are deeply curious about the authors they are reading. They are sharp and knowledgeable, but not pretentious. Thank you!

  • An ageing hipster book lover’s friend

    (I bet those who are not ageing hipsters can also gain much enjoyment!) A perfect podcast, introducing me continually to books I’ve missed & reenchanting those I love. The hosts’ and guests’ tone is just perfect: playful, open, learned but unpretentious, unashamedly in love with reading.

  • William Maxwell, So Long, See You Tomorrow

    Just listened to the re-run of this. In fact, I listened to it twice. It’s a superb example of why Backlisted is such a wonderful podcast. It provides a thrillingly good account of the power books have to enthral and move us. Exquisite. Right up there with the episode on Dermot Healy. And a reminder that Maxwell, whose books I first read in my early 20s when Harvill first reissued them, is a writer to whom I must return as I close in on my 50s.
