Was Odysseus the inspiration for James Bond? Who is the most shaggable of Jane Austen’s heroines? Did Napoleon ever make it into Moscow? For 20 years, poet and reviewer Kate Camp has regularly celebrated some of the greats of classic literature, not only on RNZ’s Saturday Morning with Kim Hill but also in the book of the same name. Her highly entertaining insight into literary classics, and her attempts to answer some of these key classic conundrums have become legendary. In a 2021 celebration of her epic endeavour, Camp is joined by rare book dealer Rick Gekoski, lawyer and Ockham NZ Book Awards shortlisted novelist Brannavan Gnanalingam, and Frances Walsh for a lively dissection of their picks.
