Rivals with Cathy Kelly

Rupert Campbell Black is back, he's fighting for a TV franchise in rural Gloucestershire (????) and he's in love with an Irish teenager! This week bestselling Irish author Cathy Kelly joins us to talk Jilly Cooper's Rivals. Here, the vast cast of characters are condensed into 800 page epic that shows us that Jilly doesn't just do horses and sex - she also does corporate takeovers. Cathy talks eighties feminism, animal-loving, bees (?), Anglo-Irish relationships in English literature, plot envy, and the underestimated intellect of Jilly Cooper.
