The Mr B’s Podcast is back after its Christmas/New Year hiatus when we were all busy placing books into the hands of readers from dawn till dusk. It has returned with a slight difference.
From now on, each podcast will be based on a theme (think time travel, think revolutions and political upheaval, think the great tradition of letters written to people’s pets…we shall try!), and they will include a short author interview as well as one of our signature Mr B’s team book chats. Every episode is also accompanied by a unique reading list for your perusal.
To start off the year, we’re chatting to S.E. Lister about her book The Immortals – a story where time is treated as place and the characters negotiate both in their attempts to find a home. Jess, Nic and Emma also re-visit some time-bending favourites – novels where history does not work in the usual way.
