Loved the interview Leonard with Gardam. And esp your dialogue re
Hong Kong treaty. Loved Old Filth but last book felt a little too wrap
Up artificially but loved other 2. Love your show & just reserved
God on the Rocks also by Gardam

To validate Ms. Gardam's statement, I was a child of the British Raj in India, (Darjeeling) - sent to boarding school in England at the age of four, visited my British parents once, serving in India again at ten years old. Strangers at school and strangers at "home".

Advertising for gas fracking in Ohio on the Leonard Lopate Show? “Think about it?” I’ll think about it, not to listen to NPR.
