Readers Archive is an ongoing series that asks writers, artists and musicians to allow access to their processes of reading and research. Each month an invited contributor writes a text which discusses their own routes of investigation. Further insight into these followed avenues is given through a list of texts, lyrics or otherwise, that the selector considers to have been key on that journey.

By uncovering the links made by others, be they linear or tangential, Readers Archive offers up a list of possible turning points for further reading and departure.
Philip Hoare will be the first contributor in the series.
Hoare is the author of Serious Pleasures: The Life of Stephen Tennant (1990), Noel Coward: A Biography (1995), Wilde’s Last Stand (1997), Spike Island (2000), England’s Lost Eden (2005) and Leviathan or, The Whale (2008), which has just been short-listed for the Samuel Johnson prize for non-fiction. He also wrote and presented Arena: The Hunt for Moby-Dick (BBC 2, 2008), and wrote and directed Philip Hoare’s Guide to Whales (BBC 4, 2008)
