Anna and Annie discuss the Orwell Prize for Political Fiction winner The Nickel Boys, and what we think of David Walliams' books after criticism by Jack Monroe.
Our book of the week is Bluebird, Bluebird by Attica Locke. This is the first in the Highway 59 series featuring Darren Matthews, a black Texas Ranger. With a gripping plot, vast landscape and racial tensions, this is a must-read. Described as 'mesmerising' (Guardian) and 'a superb thriller' (Times), Locke has won many awards and we can see why. Looking forward to the next in the series, Heaven, My Home.
Coming up: Simon the Fiddler by Paulette Jiles.
