By noon Opium takes a look at the bedside tables of writers and poets. What do they read before bedtime? Which book has been dusting for ages? Which novel have they been reading? What didn’t they get through? Opium visits the authors at home and lets them talk about reading and sleeping behaviour, literary preferences, inspiration and guilty pleasures. In the week of 3 to 7 February you will hear the choices of playwright Lot Vekemans. About John Coetzee, Amos Oz, Jeanette Winterson, Judith Herzberg and Richard Ford. And about why it’s so good to learn poems by heart.
