Philip Larkin’s Letters to Monica is the Book of the Week on BBC Radio 4.

Philip Larkin’s Letters to Monica span the forty years of their relationship from 1946 when they met, until Larkin’s death in 1985. They only came to light after Monica Jones died in 2001, when nearly two thousand letters were discovered in Larkin’s house in Hull. This never previously published correspondence, edited by Anthony Thwaite, offers a unique insight into Larkin’s most intimate thoughts.
