DM Thomas is best known for his novel The White Hotel, a number one bestseller. It is the compelling, profound story of a woman undergoing psychoanalysis, a verse novel which excavates the predicament of its central character with beauty and humanity. It is one of the great seminal novels about psychoanalysis and the erotic drive towards the irrational. DM Thomas was sued for $4.2 million over the attempted making of the film of the novel, and I find out why in my interview.

DM Thomas is also the author of numerous highly acclaimed poetry books. He has written a groundbreaking biography of Solzhenitsyn, and translated numerous Russian poets, among them Pushkin. He has a new verse novel out, Vintage Ghosts, which relates to the experiences of a group of mostly old men who regularly look at and write to a website full of vintage images. DM Thomas joined me at The Slaughterhouse where we talked about his career and the influence of psychoanalysis on it.
