The Book Club Review

Apr 16, 2020

Part novel, part poem, Lanny evokes a typical English village whose residents are observed by an ancient spirit of nature – with a particular interest in one child.

The Guardian called it ‘...a fable, a collage, a dramatic chorus, a joyously stirred cauldron of words’, but what did Kate's book club make of it?

We discuss, and share some recommendations for your next book club read, including Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss and The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry.

Books mentioned on this episode:

Grief is the Thing With Feathers by Max Porter

Ghost Wall by Sarah Moss

Gwelio, Memories of a Hong Kong Childhood by Martin Booth

The Essex Serpent by Sarah Perry
