14. Two Serious Ladies + A Horse Walks Into A Bar

We debate Two Serious Ladies, the neglected 1940s ‘cult’ classic by Jane Bowles, and David Grossman’s A Horse Walks Into A Bar, which won the 2017 Man Booker International Prize.

For our regular interview, we talk to Kat Brown about how she started the Jilly Cooper Book Club.
