Join us as we discuss the 2021 Booker shortlist in typical book club style, with returning guest, journalist Phil Chaffee, and new-to-the-pod Chrissy Ryan, owner of Bookbar, our favourite bookshop / bar.
We livestream the Booker ceremony so you can catch our immediate reactions as winner Damon Galgut is announced. Did we agree? Was there a book we loved more? Was there one we loathed? As ever, whether we loved them or loathed them, you can be assured of a good debate.
