ABBB on RN

ABC Radio National aired an episode of Science Friction this week in which I was interviewed about my book Airplane Baby Banana Blanket and the chimpanzee Lucy on whom (I prefer whom to which when referring to Lucy) its poems are based.

Natasha Mitchell and I spoke about a range of issues regarding Lucy and the problematic experiment that constituted her cross-fostered childhood and difficult later 'rehabilitation'.

I also read a good selection of poems from ABBB. Check it out in the Radio section of my media page.
