Preview: Start the Week with Radio 4's Book of the Week (Feb. 22)

Described as 'a highly personal portrait', Jackie Kay's unconventional biography of blues singer Bessie Smith had long been out of print (Absolute Press, 1997) until Faber & Faber offered to republish the book with a new introduction by the author. From Monday (Feb. 22) Jackie Kay's book  will be serialised Monday to Friday at 9:45am (repeated daily at half past midnight) as the network's Book of the Week.


Bessie Smith by Jackie Kay is published in paperback by Faber & Faber.
