Porta's Listen...The Monocle Weekly - Edition 18

We welcome two luminaries of the literary world to the studio for this week's edition of The Monocle Weekly to discuss the state of the publishing industry. James Daunt represents the best in bookselling through his eponymous London shops and Jim Gill gives a literary agent's perspective, having represented bestselling and breaking authors for over a decade. There is also a special report from The London Book Fair. Monocle's new Washington correspondent Sasha Issenberg is on the line to assess the first 100 days of Obama's presidency and we also call design editor Sarah Balmond in Italy, who gives us a rundown from Milan's furniture fair, Salone del Mobile. All this and the usual culture and comment from editor Andrew Tuck and culture editor Rob Bound, who join editor-in-chief Tyler Brûlé in the studio.
