About the Author

Stephen Games is an author and editor. He has edited one volume of Nikolaus Pevsner's radio lectures and four volumes of the prose works of John Betjeman. A former documentary maker for the BBC and arts correspondent of The Independent, his architectural reviews for The Guardian earned him a British Press Award. He has written for the Los Angeles Times and been deputy editor of the RIBA Journal. He was educated at the Central School of Art and Magdalene College, Cambridge. John Betjeman was born in 1906 and educated at Malborough and Magdalen College, Oxford. He gave his first Radio talk in 1932; future appearances made him into a national celebrity. He was knighted in 1969 and appointed poet laureate in 1972. He died in 1984.

Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful compilation of Betjeman's radio talks on various hymns and hymnwriters. However this may sound familiar - since it's a paperback version of 2007's 'Sweet Songs of Zion.'
