My guest on this week’s books podcast is the author and critic Stuart Kelly. His new book, The Minister and the Murderer: A Book of Aftermaths, tells the story of the only convicted murderer ever to become a minister of the Church of Scotland. We talk about the Ten Commandments, faith and doubt, Stuart’s experiences of being stalked by evil and nearly struck by lightning — and quite how you combine the multiple universe hypothesis in quantum physics, Jorge Luis Borges and a back issue of the DC comic The Flash.
