Rabbi Lionel Blue has lived a life on the fringes. In his recent autobiography Hitchhiking to Heaven (2004), he tells the story of how he began to question where he fitted in with traditional Jewish society, so embarking on a fascinating interior journey. With Clive Lawton, he reflected on his experiences and the contradictions of “a life lived honestly”.
