× The Weekend Edition 4

  • On this Weekend Edition special, Georgina Godwin meets two talented authors and hears about the redesigned family bookshop that is stocking their work. Nick Harkaway talks about his new book ‘Tigerman’ – all about ex-colonies, superheroes and paternal love. He's followed by Carys Bray, who tells us how it was only after leaving the Mormon faith that she could write her debut novel, ‘A Song for Issy Bradley’. Finally, Foyles, the Uk’s most iconic bookshop, has been redesigned for a new century. Georgina takes a tour of the new premises with architect Alex Lifschutz – and meets writers Caitlin Moran and David Nicholls.
