Falling Upwards

Hour 2:        What can the history of hot-air balloon adventures tell us about the resilience of imagination? We’ll spend this hour with self-deemed “romantic” biographer Richard Holmes. After a series of books on poets, he changes direction to follow the rise of “ballomania” with Falling Upwards: How We Took to the Air (Pantheon, 2013).
