Attempting a novel in one of the bleakest places on earth

From Nine To Noon, 10:07 am on 13 June 2017

Nell Stevens went to a remote rocky island, part of the Falklands group, to write a novel. Once on Bleaker Island (official population:two) , she discovered that her plan to become a "book machine", pumping out 2500 words a day, was harder than she'd thought. What she ended up with is a memoir about the whole experience, Bleaker House. She tells Kathryn Ryan all about it.
