Otegha Uwagba - You're Booked

For our series finale, we are thrilled to present this conversation with author, podcaster and all-round inspiration Otegha Uwagba! Otegha is the author of the bestselling career guide Little Black Book and the essay collection Whites: On Race and Other Falsehoods which was picked as one of the Guardian’s Books of The Year. Her latest book is the memoir We Need To Talk About Money. We talked to her about Enid Blyton deep cuts, books about families, jumping aboard the Ferrante bandwagon and why some books are like catnip.
