Anna and Annie discuss the 2020 Miles Franklin Longlist.
Our book of the week is Hamnet by Maggie O'Farrell, author of the best-selling memoir I Am, I Am, I Am. Her latest novel tells the story of Shakespeare's wife Agnes and their son Hamnet, who died aged 11, four years before Shakespeare wrote Hamlet. Marian Keyes has called it "O'Farrell's best book yet." It has been getting all the buzz and is shortlisted for the 2020 Women's Prize.
Coming up: Red at the Bone by Jacqueline Woodson.
