Disgrace: sad books when you're sad, stripping yourself away, and intellectual fight club with Rose Bishop

On this weeks Book(ish) I sit down with comedian Rose Bishop to discuss Disgrace by J.M. Coetzee. Our conversation includes the unexpected solace of reading sad books when you're sad, how COVID has helped strip everything away, and how a book can feel like the intellectual equivalent of a fight club. Enjoy!
