In an ideal world, John Hegley would be mass-produced and sold in the shops. Not his books, they’re already out there, but the man himself. He’d cheer everyone up and distract you long enough to forget what you were bothered about.Whether it’s at his ludicrous drawings, silly join-in songs, or clever and unexpectedly structured poems, he hits the spot with all ages and brings in the laughs. If everyone could see life and each other through his glasses I bet the world would be a sweeter, safer, better and funnier place.

Ben Rawlence talks about his internationally best selling book City of Thorns. Recently book of the week on Radio Four, it interweaves the stories of nine people living in the refugee camp Dadaab.
To the charity workers, Dadaab refugee camp is a humanitarian crisis; to the Kenyan government, it is a ‘nursery for terrorists’ but to its half a million residents, it is their last resort. City of Thorns is an urgent human story with deep international repercussions, brought to life through the stories of people who call Dadaab home.
