The Women’s Prize 2023, one of our favourite episodes to read for and discuss. We’re joined by old friend Sarah Oliver and new friend Nina Davies, and so listen in as we share our thoughts this year’s list. As ever, you’ll hear our frank opinions about the books, but we won’t spoil the plots for you. Think of it instead as a handy overview to help you decide which of these books is for you, or, if you’ve read them, to see if we share your thoughts on them.
The prize is announced on 14th June 2023. Find out all the details and follow along at the Women’s Prize website.
