Books On The Go

Mar 12, 2019

Anna and Amanda sit down with Preti Taneja to discuss her book We That Are Young, a modern-day King Lear set in India.

A Sunday Times Book of the Year, Guardian Book of the Year, Spectator Book of the Year and winner of the 2018 Desmond Elliott prize, it's a sweeping tale with wonderful characters and a mix of elite India, corruption and poverty.  It's a superb book, now being adapted for television

Preti recommends The Sellout by Paul Beatty and the podcasts YYY and So Many Damn Books.

Coming up: The Lost Man with Jane Harper and The Great Believers with Rebecca Makkai.
