Alert! Claire Armitstead, the literary editor of the Guardian, brings a basketful of SA Lit to her listeners in her weekly books podcast. Featured are the works and voices of BOOK SA members Kevin Bloom, Imraan Coovadia, Niq Mhlongo and John van de Ruit, who appear alongside writers who by now have become our literary standard-bearers: Deon Meyer, Antjie Krog, Zakes Mda and Njabulo Ndebele.

Part of the podcast was recorded at the recent Guardian Hay Festival – and Your Correspondent was privileged to be in the room for the chat.
