Anna and Amanda discuss the Pulitzer Prize for Fiction, awarded to Colson Whitehead for The Nickel Boys.
Our book of the week is The Bass Rock by Evie Wyld, award-winning author and "gothic genius" (Hannah Kent). This is a gripping novel about three women set in brooding coastal Scotland in the 18th century, 1950s and today. Described as "#MeToo Gothic" (Sydney Morning Herald), we love Jen Campbell's book maths: "Sarah Waters meets Ali Smith meets Fleabag". It's brilliant.
Coming up: Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell.
