”He hummed Cole Porter – so anachronistic in those days of psychedelic rock’n’roll’ – Anne R Allen

My guest this week is another writer who usually keeps music well away from her workspace. But when she unearthed a note written to her by an enigmatic friend from her college days, she found herself drawn to Ella Fitzgerald’s legendary recording of the Cole Porter songbook on the Verve label. The novel is The Gatsby Game, and its author, Anne R Allen, will be talking about its undercover soundtrack here on Wednesday.

      Really enjoyed cueing up your post, Anne. You got me humming some old favourites. Obviously I have that album and I know so many of Mr Porter’s songs.
