Books On The Go

Anna and Amanda discuss the 2019 Goldsmiths Prize shortlist.  Breaking news: the winner has been announced - Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellmann. Yay!

Our book of the week is When I Hit You, Or, A Portrait of the Writer as a Young Wife, by Meena Kandasamy. A raw, unflinching look at domestic violence but also poetic and at times funny, it has been described as 'explosive', 'searing', 'scorching' and 'shattering'.  It is a cracker of a novel.  It was shortlisted for the 2018 Women's Prize for Fiction and was named in the 2017 Best Books by the Guardian, Daily Telegraph, Observer and Financial Times.

Next week, Anna and Annie will be reading Glory and its Litany of Horrors by Fernanda Torres, translated by Eric M. B. Becker.
