Chancellor George Osborne, Justin Cartwright, 99 Homes, Mark Haddon

Chancellor George Osborne discusses his plans to take artworks and performances from British cultural institutions, including the British Museum, the Royal Opera House and Shakespeare's Globe, to China in a £7 million project. 99 Homes, a drama from director Ramin Bahrani, explores the sub-prime housing crisis in America. Andrew Garfield stars as Dennis Nash, a contractor evicted from his family home by a real estate mogul looking to profit from the re-possessions. Larushka Ivan-Zadeh reviews. In his latest novel, South African writer Justin Cartwright looks to his ancestor, Boer leader Piet Retief, who was murdered by the Zulu King Dingane in 1838. In Up Against The Night, we follow Frank, an imaginary descendant of Retief who travels back to a troubled modern day South Africa. Mark Haddon, author of the hugely popular The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nighttime, tells John Wilson about his story Bunny, shortlisted for the BBC National Short Story Award, about a man who can't stop eating and a woman who brings him food.
