For Kate’s most recent book club, we set off to the high Himalayas in search of snow leopards and spiritual enlightenment with Peter Matthiessen’s cult classic The Snow Leopard. But what did we make of it? Is it a ‘man’s book’? And did it make for good debate?
Also in this episode we take a trip to Paris to interview Morgan Thomas of The American Library about his Proust Book Club.
We end with the usual round of recommendations for your next book club read. Our bookseller recommendation for this episode comes from Joe Hedinger of brilliant independent bookshop The Book Hive.
