The Book Club Review

Jun 13, 2017

In which Kate and Laura have wildly differing opinions over Kim Leine's historical novel The Prophets of Eternal Fjord (nominated for the 2017 International Dublin Literary Award) but discover a shared distaste for the word 'greasy'. 'My front teeth are quite fallen out but for five that dangle like scoundrels of the night from a gallows' complains the main character, Morten Falck, as we follow his experiences attempting to convert the Inuit to Christianity in late-18th-century Greenland. Did this make for a great book club book? Listen in to find out. We also interview Frances Ambler, features editor of Oh Comely magazine about championing new books by women writers and we have some great recommendations for your next book club read.
