Timberlake Wertenbaker, Jupiter Ascending Reviewed, Reading Europe: France

The playwright Timberlake Wertenbaker talks to Kirsty Lang about her new play, Jefferson's Garden, which looks at how the contradictions surrounding the subject of race, that lie at the heart of modern-day America, were established by the Founding Fathers. Mila Kunis and Eddie Redmayne star in Jupiter Ascending, the latest sci-fi adventure from the Wachowskis, celebrated for The Matrix and Cloud Atlas. Author Sophia McDougall reviews. As BBC Radio 4 launches Reading Europe, a series of dramatised modern European novels, beginning in France, Damian Barr visits Paris. He talks to critic Sylvain Bourmeau about the recent novels that throw light on contemporary France. He chooses La Petite Foule (The Small Crowd) by Christine Angot; Cendrillon (Cinderella) by Eric Reinhardt; and Vernon Subutex, 1, by Virginie Despentes. He also talks about Soumission (Submission) by Michel Houellebecq, the novel that became embroiled in the recent Charlie Hebdo tragedy.
