This month on The Writer and the Critic your hosts, Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond, discuss two mainstream novels with a speculative fiction flavour. Ian has chosen Life After Life by Kate Atkinson (beginning at 6:05) and while Kirstyn’s recommendation is The Testament of Jessie Lamb by Jane Rogers (46:15).
During the discussion, Ian references this review of the Atkinson by Maureen Kincaid Speller while Kirstyn reads from this Salon piece by Laura Miller. Kirstyn also talks about a Niall Harrison review and mentions this interview with Jane Rogers.
If you’ve skipped ahead to avoid spoilers, please check back in at 1:33:15 for final remarks.
