Reading became my saviour
Episode 3. Alex Wheatle. The Amplify Project. Black writers in their own words. We’ve invited writers for the stage, page and screen to tell us about themselves, their work, what inspires them and why they write. In this episode writers Patricia Cumper and Pauline Walker are joined by novelist Alex Wheatle who discusses how reading became his saviour, when he started writing novels before moving into developing a successful career writing YA fiction and how his life was put on the screen in acclaimed director Steve McQueen’s Small Axe films.
