The Book Club Review

May 5, 2017

This episode features a rare falling out between Kate and her book club over Margaret Atwood's latest novel, Hag-Seed, while Laura's book club appreciate the captivating travel memoir Border: A Journey to the Edge of Europe by Bulgarian emigrée Kapka Kassabova. We also chat with Michael Waldman, a documentary film-maker who tells us about a book so good it made a long journey on the Trans-Siberian Railway pass in a moment. And finally, as always, a few recommendations to help you decide your next book club read.
