The weekend after the Brexit vote we decided to create a podcast celebrating European fiction. We felt that the best way to move forward in uncertain times, was to embrace the cross-cultural creativity which underpins so much of the writing we love and champion in the shop. We also asked our listeners to contribute with their own favourite reading memories. We hope you're inspired to read the whole list. Spot the background seagulls!
