The Book Show, Saturday 30th September

This week Sinéad Gleeson speaks to Natasha Pulley about The Bedlam Sticks - her historical novel about the dangerous hunt for quinine in 19th century Peru.

The Book Show is back for its fifth season. For the past few years we’ve interviewed hundreds of writers for the show. Now the writers get to ask the questions. In the first half of the season John Boyne, Eimear McBride, Eoin Colfer and Liz Nugent guest-present programmes. We’ll also hear from producers Regan Hutchins on Tristram Shandy and Zoë Comyns on Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. 

This week on Sunday 25th March, John Boyne sits in the chair.
