Two aspiring writers, two messy love lives, two very different books that each take the craft of writing as their main theme, one from the female perspective and one from the male. Writers & Lovers made the New York Times list of 100 notable books of 2020 while Early Work was published to largely favourable reviews in 2018. How did they compare? What did Laura’s book club make of them? Listen in to find out.
Note: Spoiler alert – we do talk about the ending of Writer and Lovers. We flag it up in the show when we get to it, so you have the opportunity to stop listening if you don’t want to know how things turn out.
