Louise Doughty - Shelf Isolation

We are still somewhat locked down this week, but rather than binge watching old episodes of Keeping Up Appearances we are talking to out nearest and dearest about literary life in quarantine. This week it's the mega-selling author and critic Louise Doughty! Louise is the author of nine novels, with her most recent being Platform Seven. Her previous book, Black Water, was a New York Times Notable Book and Apple Tree Yard was adapted into a successful TV series starring Emily Watson. We talked to her about which character she'd like to be in lockdown with, Ursula Le Guin and holidaying vicariously via books.
