Christmas time is approaching and so is the Mr B’s Christmas catalogue. Tom’s favourite book of the year, featured in the catalogue, is a novel set in Spain, written in Swedish and translated into English. Breat Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs is an inventive, edgy and darkly humorous tale in which the protagonist doesn’t get a voice of her own, and in which everyone is always telling a story about someone else. Lina Wolff, its author, came to the shop earlier in the year and sat down to chat to Jess about brilliant girls in literature, Spanish gossip, and why there are no Swedish characters in her novel.

Books mentioned in this episode:

Bret Easton Ellis and the Other Dogs by Lina Wolff

Pippi Longstocking by Astrid Lindgren

Nightwood by Djuna Barnes

The Saga of Gösta Berling by Selma Lagerlöf

Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes

Music by The Bookshop Band
