In a series of imaginary correspondences, novelist Ian Sansom, writes letters to five of literary history's most celebrated figures and interrogates them about their art.

'Dear Virginia Woolf, Please accept my apologies. For a long time I thought you represented everything that's wrong with literature...' How exactly does George Eliot do it? Why is it so difficult? And what's that Jonathan Swift just called him? Producer: Conor Garrett.
