Oyinkan Braithwaite on My Sister, The Serial Killer – Noirwich 2020

Lockdown didn’t stop us from putting on the Noirwich Crime Writing Festival this year in partnership with our friends at the University of East Anglia. One of the many highlights was this conversation between Oyinkan Braithwaite and Femi Kayode, discussing Oyinkan’s My Sister, The Serial Killer. If you missed it during the festival, now’s your chance to listen on the pod!

Meanwhile, Steph and Simon are joined by Flo to introduce the latest NCW Book Club book: Our Place by Mark Cocker. Find out more here:
