Small Wonder - THE RESERVOIR TAPES, image from event to be held on 30 September 2017

The launch of a new series of interconnected stories on BBC Radio 4 serves as a prequel to an acclaimed new novel, Reservoir 13, which describes the many lives haunted by the loss of a teenage girl over a decade: “Absolutely magnificent; one of the most beautiful, affecting novels I’ve read in years” (Eimear McBride).

Author Jon McGregor talks to Di Speirs, who commissioned the stories for the BBC, about the challenges and joys of expanding and exploring minor characters from the novel, moving backwards in time and retaining the shape and sensibility of the short story form in fifteen radio episodes.

Prequels are in the air. Discover how a current Booker Short-listed novel has been transformed into fifteen radio broadcasts, moving backwards in time.
