Lucy Mangan - You're Booked

This week we're delighted to chat to author and journalist Lucy Mangan! Lucy's book Bookworm has been discussed many times on the show and is a firm favourite in YB Towers. Her new novel Are We Having Fun Yet? is fun, furious and unforgettable. We talked to her about reading epiphanies, the literary merits of Les Dawson, quintessential children's books and finding writing solace in Ikea.
