Our first guest is Chinese-British novelist and film-maker Xiaolu Guo, whose work has been translated into more than 26 languages. Also on the show we have Canadian dancer turned author Emily St John Mandel, whose latest book ‘Station Eleven’ is a ‘New York Times’ best-seller. Together the two examine themes of home, from growing up in communist China to living in a fictionalised post-apocalyptic world.
