Listener Week - where all the topics are chosen by you.

The book that changed my life and I want to pass on. Huma Qureshi and Ronali Collings nominate The Namesake by Jhumpa Lahari. They explain the impact it had on them when they read it and how important it was to see their life reflected in fiction.

Can an age gap make a difference to a relationship? We hear from a listener and her partner who's 26 years older than her. Does it really matter or is age really just a number?

Jo Clift wants to discuss "the complex decision and feelings around letting your hair go grey after years of colouring". She wants to know whether, as a 53 year old woman who runs her own business if it'll affect the way that she is perceived professionally .

And we're talking being bullied as an adult. It's normally associated with younger people and children but it can happen later in life too. What's the best way to handle it?
