Saoirse Ronan, The Hairy Ape, Ghost Stories and Acoustic Hendrix

Kirsty Lang talks to Saoirse Ronan, Oscar nominated at the age of 13 for Atonement, who plays an Irish immigrant in her new film Brooklyn, based on Colm Toibin's novel. As Halloween approaches, unsurprisingly book publishers take advantage and countless book about ghosts have been appearing on our shelves. We take a look at three quite different examples and ask why our fascination with ghosts continues. Susannah Clapp reviews The Old Vic's new production of The Hairy Ape, Eugene O'Neill's classic expressionist masterpiece. Yank, played by Bertie Carvel, is a labourer who revels in his status as the strongest stoker on a transatlantic ocean liner. This week the opening of the house where Jimi Hendrix lived as a museum was announced. Kirsty hears from Benji Kirkpatrick, who will be playing at the opening, why he has made an album of the rock singer and electric guitar wizard's songs that are performed entirely acoustically and with no trace of a guitar.
