In their first interview of Season 2, Jimi and Alison meet Candice Carty-Williams, author of the bestselling 2019 novel Queenie and the first black writer to win book of the year at the British Book Awards. Candice tells us about her father’s fried plantain and the challenge of cooking in flatshares - plus why cashews make the best writing fuel.
Queenie is out now and People Person will be released in February 2022. You can follow Candice on Instagram and Twitter @candicec_w.
