Touchstones is a new series in which creative people talk about works of literature, art, places or objects that give them solace or inspiration. In each episode the guest talks us through the touchstones that provide them with inspiration, hold particular emotional meaning or are simply compelling objects or works of art that they return to time and again. In this episode we will be joined by Bernadine Evaristo, Booker Prize-winning author of Girl, Woman, Other.
