Anna and Amanda discuss the 2021 Women's Prize winner Susanna Clarke for Piranesi, a follow-up story about #BookTok trends and the winners of the 2021 Wainwright Prize for nature writing. Amanda recommends this interview with Merlin Sheldrake on Conversations with Richard Fidler.
Our book of the week is Minor Detail by Adania Shibli translated by Elisabeth Jacquette. A short, powerful novel about a crime in 1949 and a young woman investigating in modern-day Palestine, it was longlisted for the 2021 International Booker Prize and shortlisted for the 2020 National Book Awards for translated literature. It was also the group read-along for the Women in Translation Month #WITReadathon.
Coming up: Beautiful World, Where Are You by Sally Rooney and Real Estate by Deborah Levy.
