Episode 84 - DBC Pierre: Part 3


'I don't believe in inspiration.' So says DBC Pierre at the start of his third This Writing Life podcast, brought to you after two small party political broadcasts. Following a little drug chatter, I ask how Pierre disorients his senses these days? From here we meander to:

  •  how Pierre gets down to writing
  • how Pierre started writing, circa Vernon God Little
  • 'I had a mindset that writing was for masters...and would be way above me'
  • Pierre's handwriting challenge
  • how did Pierre get over his literary anxiety?
  • 'I wrote in anger one day...'
  • who was on Pierre's jury of imaginary readers?
  • Pierre as one of life's observers

 Part four of four to follow.
