The Book Club Review

Jan 17, 2021

A book sent from friend to friend around the world, with a notebook full of comments. Have we found the perfect Covid lockdown bookclub? We're joined by podcaster and books blogger Simon Thomas who explains how it works. We also get some wonderful book recommendations from authors you may not have read or even heard of, and catch up about his Book of the Year club (in which all the books read come from a single year). 

Books mentioned in this episode:

Once a Week by A. A. Milne, A House and its Head by Ivy Compton Burnet, We Have Always Lived in the Castle, The Haunting of Hill House, Life Among The Savages and Raising Demons by Shirley Jackson, The British Library Woman Writers series – including Chatterton Square by E.H. Young and Dangerous Ages by Rose Macaulay, The Diary of a Provincial Lady by E.M. Delafield, Tea at Four O’Clock by Janet McNeill and The Stone of Chastity by Margery Sharp
