The Follycast Episode 5: Foxglove Summer

In this month’s episode…

…after a summer break we discuss, appropriately enough, Foxglove Summer – book five in the bestselling Peter Grant series of novels by Ben Aaronovitch.

It’s a story that ties together changelings, unicorns, dogging, forests, steam traction engines, bees, fairy queens and Roman Roads, but if we are entirely honest, did we entirely understand the plot? Is it a much needed break from London and the Folly, or frustrating after the explosive conclusion of the book before it, Broken Homes? After a re-read is it still Margaret’s favourite book? Why does Jennie think it ends like an opera? Why does Richard hang around in a den of geeks and will Jan be able to visit Herefordshire any more?

All this will be revealed in the next 42 minutes.


Hosted by Margaret Holborn and Richard Marks, with Jan Trott and Jennie Beck

Produced by Richard Marks for Uncertain Smile productions
