Anna and Annie discuss the winner of the Staunch prize, On Java Ridge by Jock Serong.
Our book of the week is Disoriental by Négar Djavadi translated by Tina Kover. This debut novel is the story of Kimiâ, who flees Iran aged 10 and now lives in exile in Paris. It weaves her family history with the story of Iran. Winner of numerous awards, this is a lyrical book, beautifully translated. A challenging but valuable read.
Next week, Anna and Amanda are reading The Last Girl by Nadia Murad and Jenna Krajeski.
