Patrick McGrath, exploring man's darker side
We speak to author Patrick McGrath. His latest novel is set in New York, the city he now calls home. How will "Trauma," a tale of troubled psyches and internal conflict, translate for a French audience? And, more than a century after the Huckleberry Finn author's death, the release of Mark Twain's autobiography sees him once again riveting readers.
We'll also be hearing from Mexican artists who feel they've unfairly fallen victim to a diplomatic spat that's thrown a spanner into plans to exhibit their works in Europe.
