Book Tuber Russell Gray of Ink and Paper Blog joins us to talk about his reading of this year’s Booker Prize nominees. He’s read all thirteen books on the long list, talks about the novels on the shortlist, and shares some ideas about which book he thinks will win and why. For two women who claim to have been busy lately, we sure did manage to read a lot since our last episode! Emily even snuck in one more #BigBookSummer novel, THE DISPLACEMENTS by Bruce Holsinger, and two cooking-related books: BLACK, WHITE, AND THE GREY: THE STORY OF AN UNEXPECTED FRIENDSHIP AND A BELOVED RESTAURANT by John O. Morisano and Mashama Bailey, and MISS ELIZA’S ENGLISH KITCHEN: A NOVEL OF VICTORIAN COOKERY AND FRIENDSHIP by Annabel Abbs (audio narrated by Ell Potter and Bianca Amato). She also read a novel that’s first coming out in January 2023 — she couldn’t wait! — SMALL WORLD by Laura Zigman. Chris whipped through the next entry in the Alex Carter series, A GHOST OF CARIBOU by Alice Henderson which comes out November 6th. Then she decided to dig back into the early 20th century and read the first English translation of one of the first lesbian novels, ARE THEY WOMEN?: A NOVEL CONCERNING THE THIRD SEX (1901) by Aimée Duc, translated from German by Margaret Sönser Breen and Nisha Kommattam, and also MISS NOBODY FROM NOWHERE (1927) by Elizabeth Jordan. We’re excited to talk with listeners who are reading our fourth quarter readalong, THE SEED KEEPER by Diane Wilson. Join us for a zoom discussion on 9/18 at 7 pm ET (email us at bookcougars@gmail.com) or over on our Goodreads page.
