The International Anthony Burgess Foundation Podcast is dedicated to exploring the life and work of Anthony Burgess and his contemporaries, and the cultural environment in which Burgess was working. A combination of scripted episodes, interviews and lectures, this series is a resource for students, readers and anyone else interested in twentieth century literature, film and music. The International Anthony Burgess Foundation Podcast includes episodes on A Clockwork Orange and other novels written by Burgess, the influence of James Joyce, literary dystopias and utopias, and Burgess’s musical compositions among many other themes and topics.
A good place to start with The International Anthony Burgess Foundation Podcast is our episode titled ‘Anthony Burgess for Beginners’. You can stream it below, or find it on your favourite podcast app.
In 1984, Anthony Burgess published his survey of twentieth century literature Ninety-Nine Novels: The Best in English Since 1939. The book is a personal, and somewhat idiosyncratic, selection of Burgess’s favourite novels, and not only stimulates debate but acts as a crash-course in the literature that inspired and influenced Burgess throughout his career. The Ninety-Nine Novels Podcast invites experts to illuminate Burgess’s choices, and includes episodes on famous masterworks to unjustly forgotten gems.
The Ninety-Nine Novels Podcast releases two series a year, and has featured episodes on Thomas Pynchon, Iris Murdoch, V.S. Naipaul and Ian Fleming. Start with episode one, on James Joyce’s Finnegans Wake. You can stream it below, or find it on your favourite podcast app.
