The latest episode of the Bookseller podcast sees host Cathy Rentzenbrick and regulars Caroline Sanderson, Philip Jones and Alice O'Keefe sharing their top book picks of the month.
Top of the news is the brilliant but controversial novel American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins which has raised thorny issues of cultural appropriation of the immigrant experience following its launch in the US.
Cathy chats to Kiran Millwood Hargrave about The Mercies, the celebrated children's author's first book for adults. Meanwhile Lennie Goodings talks about A Bite of the Apple, a fascinating memoir which covers 40 years of publishing and feminism in Soho.
This month’s spoken extract comes from Anne Enright’s Actress, beautifully read by the author herself.
