This week on Fortunately Fi and Jane are joined by American novelist Anne Tyler, all the way from Baltimore USA. Anne talks Fi and Jane through her household chore routine and how it came to feature in her new book, Redhead by the Side of the Road. The Pulitzer Prize winner also divulges why she likes visiting people with messy abodes, why she thinks poets are more competitive and hears Fi and Jane's take on some of her works. Before they chatted to one of their favourite authors, Fi and Jane discussed a certain trip to the North East by a Government Advisor. As well as that, matters broached include painless childbirth, Allan keys and the 1979 General Election. GET IN TOUCH: fortunately.podcast@bbc.co.uk
