The Daily Telegraph describes N Quentin Woolf as â€˜a gravelly-voiced writerâ€™, whichÂ seems to get to the nub of it.
His cult weekly podcast for Londonist has attracted a large and loyal following, bothÂ in the UK and internationally. Guests have included Londoners of all stripes, includingÂ philosophers, medics, artists, anarchists and the Lord Mayor.
Alongside hosting Londonist Out Loud, NQW makes occasional appearances on BBCÂ Radio 4 and ABC Australia, talking about literature and design. He has previouslyÂ hosted a weekly arts radio show, as well as a series about James Joyceâ€™s Ulysses. He isÂ a columnist for several literary magazines.
NQWâ€™s novel The Death Of The Poet will be published in 2014 by Serpentâ€™s Tail.
