Anna and Annie discuss the Stella Prize winner, The Erratics by Vicki Laveau-Harvie.  The Los Angeles Times Book Prizes have been announced, with The Great Believers by Rebecca Makkai winning for Fiction and My Sister, The Serial Killer by Oyinkan Braithwaite for Crime / Thriller.

Our book of the week is Lost Children Archive by Valeria Luiselli.  It's been described as 'electric' (New York Times), 'wholly original' (NPR), 'constantly surprising' (The New Yorker), 'virtuosic' (The New York Times Book Review), 'stunning' (The Seattle Times) and 'an epic road trip' (The Washington Post) and long-listed for the Women's Prize for Fiction, with the short-list to be announced on 29 April.  What did Anna and Annie think?

Next week, a special episode: Anna will be speaking with Chanel Cleeton about her new book When We Left Cuba.  Then Anna and Amanda will be back with Spring by Ali Smith.
