Lisa Jewell – You’re Booked

We are delighted to invite one of our all-time favourite authors to the podcast this week. It’s the sensational Lisa Jewell! Lisa is the Sunday Times and New York Times bestselling author of twenty novels, which have sold over 10 million copies internationally and translated into 29 languages. Her debut (and YB fave) was Ralph’s Party and subsequent releases include The Family Upstairs, Then She Was Gone, Invisible Girl and Watching You. Her latest is the eagerly anticipated None of This is True. We talked to her about her shelf of joy, curating your holiday read selection, 90s/Noughties favourites, the books that made her want to write and formative reads.
