Anna and Annie discuss the Stella Prize shortlist (belatedly!)
Our book of the week is The New Life by Tom Crewe. A brilliant debut novel about two marriages and sexual freedom in 1890s London, it evokes the time and place beautifully but feels modern and resonates today. It reminded us of Colm Tóibín, with "the spirit of Forster" (Washington Post).
Coming up: The Great Fire by Shirley Hazzard.
