Delving into the art world. Julian Barnes and Celia Paul: Cape in Conversation

This year marks 100 years of Vintage imprint Jonathan Cape. To celebrate, we’ve launched Cape in Conversation, a Vintage Books podcast miniseries which will see authors from across the generations and genres of Cape’s list discuss their work and ideas, and give you a flavour of the many kinds of book and different voices that Cape publishes.


Today, series host Shahidha Bari is in conversation with an artist who writes and a writer whose subject is often art, Celia Paul and Julian Barnes.
