Songs in the Key of Life
Following on from her smash hit debut novel The Versions of Us, Laura Barnett has penned the literary equivalent of the difficult second album, working with Mercury nominated singer-songwriter Kathryn Williams. The result is Greatest Hits, the story of Cass Wheeler, an acclaimed but now reclusive singer-songwriter compiling her greatest hits album. Each song is a chapter of her life and through her music we learn of her loves and losses. Today, Barnett discusses the novel with celebrated Scottish folk singer Karine Polwart, whose own finely-crafted songs speak to the most powerful of human emotions and experiences.
