"Well, I found in the end that the only way I could write the sort of book that I have written was to be very, very honest about him [Mark Glanville's father] and about him and my mother really, and about the people that I felt…So in order to be able to describe what I became I had to really talk in a lot of depth and detail about my parents and I was very, very worried indeed about how they would react to it." [Mark Glanville]

The session marked the publication of Mark Glanville's The Goldberg Variations, in which the author narrates his extraordinary journey from extravagantly gifted schoolboy to football hooligan to Oxford Classics student to classical singer and Jewish husband and father.
