The Wheeler Centre Gala 2019: Crush: Jon Faine
'My world did not extend much beyond shoplifting comics and reciting their contents word for word the next day.'
Jon Faine works through crushes new and old, real and fictional, to arrive at his current, secret crush.
For our 2019 Gala Night of Storytelling, we invited some of our favourite writers and thinkers to dish about their fictional crush. It may have been a character of page, stage, screen or stereo – or some life-changing, out-of-reach hero of the real world.
After seven years as a lawyer, Jon entered radio broadcasting in 1989 to produce and present Radio National’s Law Report.
