Julie Burchill Unchosen
Wednesday, 26 February 2014

At 14 Julie Burchill fell in love. Not with a boy, but “with a whole race of people – the Jews”. The journalist and novelist has been learning Hebrew and even chose Hatikvah, the Israeli national anthem, as her single record choice for Desert Island Discs. Unchosen, which will be published in spring 2014 through crowdfunding, is all about this love affair. In a special pre-publication event the inveterate nonconformist shares with Tanya Gold why she’s such a fan.
