The Review Show

11:00pm Friday 31 August on BBC TWO

With help from guests Maureen Lipman, Paul Morley and Sarah Crompton, Kirsty Wark reviews N-W, the new novel from Zadie Smith which is being launched at the Book Festival this week, and Wonderland, a darkly subversive take on the themes of Alice in Wonderland, which is part of the Edinburgh International Festival.

Plus highlights of the Edinburgh Art Festival.

Ep 3/3

11:00pm Friday 17 August on BBC TWO

Kirsty Wark and guests will verbally dissect some of the biggest but also some of the more offbeat events and performances in a special three week run of Friday nights, looking at the highlights of the Edinburgh Festivals.

The second episode of this run will be dedicated to one of the major coups of the Edinburgh International Book Festival, with an extended interview with Atonement author Ian McEwan who is launching his new novel Sweet Tooth there.

Kirsty and her crew return again the following Friday for a more widespread range of reports and discussions of the hits and misses.
