The third episode of The London Library Podcast is now live. This month we're delighted to be joined by actor and rare book dealer Neil Pearson.

Neil talks about the five books that have shaped his life, schooling and various career choices. His book selection includes the Jennings series, Henry Miller and Hard Rain Falling by Don Carpenter.

The London Library Podcast launched on 18 November 2019 and features a leading writer or figure in the cultural world discussing the books which have shaped them. Each month the guest is in conversation with The London Library’s Director, Philip Marshall and will delve into the Library’s archive and collection to uncover treasured books and nuggets of historical detail about the guest’s book choices.

The London Library Podcast is a celebration of books and the ideas they inspire and a personal love letter from each guest to the books that have been most influential to them.
