Mornings Host Katrina Roe and book reviewer Natasha Moore bring you books to enrich your life.
In this episode, they discuss:
- the dystopian feminist novel The Power
- A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles
- a World War 2 love story, Everyone Brave is Forgiven
The Power, by Naomi Alderman, has been called The Handmaid’s Tale of our era and comes recommended by Margaret Attwood herself.
A Gentleman in Moscow by Amor Towles is the story of a former Russian Count who spends his life holed up in the Hotel Metropol after the Russian Revolution. As one reviewer wrote, ‘Imagine a younger, Slavic version of Alexander McCall Smith facing the Bolsheviks.’
And finally, Katrina raves about the surprising WW2 love story; Everyone Brave is Forgiven, by Chris Cleave.
