This month on The Writer and the Critic your hosts, Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond, begin by announcing the two patron-voted books which will be featured in the upcoming Patron’s Choice episode in September. There is also some discussion of the recently announced Man Booker longlist because IAN WAS RIGHT and both the novels featured THIS month are on the list! Those novel are of course The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead [11:30] and Exit West by Mohsin Hamid [1:01:00].

- Lovecraft Country by Matt Ruff
- The Good Lord Bird by James McBride
- The Fractured Europe Sequence by Dave Hutchinson
