#343 Caroline O'Donoghue: The Joy Of Writing For Young Adults

My guest today is Caroline O’Donoghue, an Irish author, journalist and host of the award-winning Sentimental Garbage - a brilliant podcast where she talk to authors, fans and cultural critics about the chick-lit books that are often overlooked. I’m sure listeners of this podcast will also have been hooked on the recent Sentimental Garbage mini series with Dolly Alderton called Sentimental In The City where they unpick every season of Sex And The City 'for the great American novel it truly is'. Caroline has contributed to Grazia, The Irish Times, The Irish Examiner, Buzzfeed, Vice and The Times. Her first novel, Promising Young Women came out in 2018 she was shortlisted for the Irish Book Awards’ Newcomer of the Year and other awards. Her second adult novel, Scenes of a Graphic Nature, was published in 2020 and today we are discussing All Our Hidden Gifts, a novel for young adults out now, a story of tarot, magic and teen friendship. Hope you enjoy our conversation. <3
