You’re Booked

Hosted ByDaisy Buchanan

Welcome to You’re Booked, the podcast for literary nosy parkers who would like the chance to snoop around their favourite authors’ bookshelves.

I’m Daisy Buchanan, your Book Inspector, and I’ll be asking our guests all about the first forbidden books they read under the covers, the beloved books they have borrowed, and never given back, and those impressive heavyweight hardbacks that make them look like intellectual giants – even though they couldn’t get beyond the first twenty pages.

We’ll also be talking about what makes readers into writers, how our guests became book lovers and their favourite reading memories, all with a dash of intelligence and a dollop of irreverence. Our guests include Dolly Alderton, Nina Stibbe, Nikesh Shukla, and many more favourites from our own bookshelves.

Lisa Taddeo – You’re Booked

We’re delighted to bring you this frank, revealing and fascinating interview with the author and journalist Lisa Taddeo. Lisa’s book Three Women is a Sunday Times #1 bestseller, winner of the narrative non-fiction book of the year at the British Book Awards and one of the most frequently spotted titles on the bookshelves of You’re Booked guests. We talked to her about the negative effects of fame, Lucia Berlin, the genius of Elena Ferrante and the cinematic legacy of Anthony Hopkins.
