Tessa Hadley - You're Booked

We're back! And we can't think of a better way to kick off the new series than a fascinating conversation with one of our favourite authors: Tessa Hadley! Tessa's books are constantly being discussed on the podcast so it's an absolute honour to finally have her on the show. And what a treat it was! Tessa discusses formative children's books, being shocked by John Updike, possessing a fear of fairy tales and why every teenager needs to read Jane Eyre. For your chance to appear on the podcast, pre-order Daisy's next book Limelight from Bookshop.org.
