Ep 154: The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters
Anna and Annie the Giller Prize winner for Canadian Fiction, How to Pronounce Knife by Souvankham Thammavongsa.
Our book of the week is The Paying Guests by Sarah Waters. A historical romance set in the 1920s, this has been described as a ‘tour de force’ (Wall Street Journal) and ‘a delicious hothouse of a novel’ (USA Today). Waters is a best-selling author who has been three times shortlisted for the Booker Prize. We’ve been meaning to read her for ages. But was this the right book to start with?
