Susanna Clarke - You're Booked

This week we are truly honoured to welcome the legendary Susanna Clarke to You're Booked! Her debut novel was the beloved Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell which was longlisted for the Booker Prize and won the British Book Awards Newcomer of the Year, the Hugo Award and the World Fantasy Award. Her short story collection The Ladies of Grace Adieu, set in the world of Jonathan Strange, followed in 2006. Her latest is Piranesi, a New York Times and Sunday Times bestseller, and winner of this year's Women's Prize for Fiction. We talked to her about the lure of the library, reading and running away, magic, mysterious narrators and there's even a few bonus Christmas gift ideas!
