‘As I listened, I felt Philip Glass had written the novel for me’ – Linda Gillard

My guest this week says her novel would never have made it to publication if not for a piece of music. She’d been trying for a long time to weave two narratives together and was about to give up when by chance she listened to Philip Glass’s first violin concerto. In that piece she suddenly saw the rhythms of her characters and how they could harmonise. She is Linda Gillard, the novel is Untying The Knot and she’ll be here on Wednesday talking about its Undercover Soundtrack
