Anna and Annie are excited to hear that Heather Rose's Stella Prize-winning novel The Museum of Modern Love has been sold into the UK and US markets, as well as the news that we'll be getting a new title from bestselling Australian author, Graeme Simsion, in 2019.
Our book of the week is The Silence of the Girls by Pat Barker, a retelling of the Iliad from the perspective of the Trojan Queen-turned-slave, Briseis. Barker's working class origins lend a novel view to this ancient story but does it go far enough in its feminist project?
Next week, Anna and Amanda are reading There, There by Tommy Orange.
