Who is this guy?
Robert Hudson’s second novel, The Dazzle, is published by Jonathan Cape in hardback and Vintage in paperback. His musical Damsel in Distress, written with Jeremy Sams and based on a Wodehouse novel and Gershwin songs, is due to be produced in Chichester in 2015. I know he said it was due to be produced in Chichester in 2012, 2013, and 2014, but it really is due to be produced in Chichester in 2015. Chichester have been rebuilding their theatre so it's been tricky. But they've paid for it and they've talked about it in public. That's got to mean something.
He– look, who am I trying to kid? I am Robert Hudson. As well as novels and musicals, I also write comedy with Marie Phillips. Our Napoleonic-era epistolary equine rom com, Warhorses of Letters, was first broadcast on Radio 4 in Autumn 2011, Series 2 was broadcast late in 2012 and Series 3 is on Sunday evenings in early 2014. You can buy the book version of Series 1 - which contains extra letters, a bibliographical essay and hoofnotes - at Unbound by clicking this link. The recordings of Series 1, which are absurdly cheap, are available from iTunes. The recordings of Series 2 and 3 are not yet available. This is likely to change but it is not in my or Marie's control.
My first novel was called The Kilburn Social Club; I've appeared on various Radio 4 and festival panels; I run the bi-monthly comedy night Tall Tales; and I (used to and will again) co-host the podcast Listen & Often with Toby Davies.
