Books On The Go

Mar 24, 2019

A special episode with author Rebecca Makkai to discuss her book The Great Believers - a gorgeous, multi-award winning novel set in Chicago during the 1980s AIDS crisis and modern-day Paris.   

The Great Believers won the 2019 Carnegie Medal for Excellence in Fiction, was named in the New York Times Best Books of 2018 and was a National Book Awards finalist.  It is being adapted for television by Amy Poehler.  We fell in love with the characters, had our hearts broken and saw the world differently after reading it. 

Rebecca recommends The Buddha in the Attic by Julie Otsuka and The Best American Short Stories edited by Roxanne Gay.

And three excellent podcast recommendations: Between the Covers, Lexicon Valley and (coming soon) Drinking About Writing.

Next week, Anna and Annie will be reading Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss.
