Damon Galgut and Adrian Nathan West (Dogs, Diets and Death)

Booker Prize winning author Damon Galgut goes head to head with author and translator Adrian Nathan West in a war of the words.

Damon discusses his Booker winning novel, The Promise, and how he reached a point in his career where he didn't care what anyone else thought.

Nate talks about the relationship between author and translator, and how he navigated writing a fictional memoir.

In the Book Off they pit "Kaputt" by Curzio Malaparte against J.R. Ackerley's "My Dog Tulip" - but which one will win?
