Reading Women releases new episodes every Wednesday. Each month features two episodes on the same theme—one highlighting a range of titles and one discussing two titles more in depth—and two author interviews with women writers whose work we’ve loved.

We discuss The Nakano Thrift Shop by Hiromi Kawakami and Things We Lost in the Fire by Mariana Enríquez.
