Back together again after the summer, we’re catching up on all the books we’ve been reading. So listen in for our reactions to summer buzz book Tomorrrow, Tomorrow and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin. We also cover three from the 2022 Booker Prize longlist, Trust by Hernan Diaz, The Trees by Percival Everett and After Sappho by Selby Wynn Schwartz. And should you looking for a book that can also double as a doorstop we have a couple of candidates: Lonesome Dove, Larry McMurtry’s Pulitzer-winning cowboy novel, and Red Seas under Red Skies by Scott Lynch.
Kate is also joined by author Colleen Hubbard to talk about her debut novel Housebreaking. An absorbing page-turner with some powerful themes, it’s one we recommend for your TBR pile or book club. Plus we find out more about one of Colleen’s all-time favourite reads, The Magician of Lublin.
All that and some pod news: new theme music (composed specially for us), a Patreon account, and we share our projects and plans for where we want to take the show next.
