Join Melissa in her garden as she waits to see swifts overhead. It’s warm and sunny; the birds are in full song, and mason bees are nesting in the back wall of the house. This week’s guest is Josie George, whose memoir A Still Life will be published by Bloomsbury in February 2021. ‘Roses’ by Kathleen Jamie is from The Overhaul; Kathleen’s latest book is Surfacing. Please support indie bookshops and order from them online.
