The Book Club Review

Aug 3, 2019

My Sister the Serial Killer, Oyinkan Braithwaite's superbly titled debut novel, has been one of the literary sensations of 2019 –nominated for the Women's Prize for Fiction and long listed for the Booker.

But what did both our book clubs make of it? Does it merit all the acclaim? Listen in to find out. 

Heads up: it's SPOILER-full, so don't listen unless you've read the book, or have no intention of reading it.

Books mentioned on this episode:

Ponti by Sharlene Teo, Half of a Yellow Sun, Why We Should All be Feminists, and Americanah, by Chimamanda Ngoze Adiche and Convenience Store Woman by Sayaka Murata. 

On our next book club show, we’ll be discussing Palace Walk, the first novel in Nobel Prize-winner Naguib Mahfouz's Cairo Trilogy.
