'Book Club' with the Marvellous Meg Mason (she writes books she does)


Super chuffed to be chatting to the marvellous Meg Mason for my inaugural ‘Book Club’ pod. She is totally fabulous, made me laugh non-stop and pulls of a wicked Welsh accent for someone who doesn’t call ‘the green, green, grass’ home.

Meg Mason began her career at The Financial Times and The Times of London. Her work has since appeared in The Sunday Times, The Sydney Morning Herald and The Sunday Telegraph. She has written humour for The New Yorker and Sunday STYLE, a monthly column for GQ, and was a regular contributor to Vogue, ELLE and Marie Claire, before turning to fiction full-time.

Her first book Say It Again in a Nice Voice, a memoir of early motherhood, was published in 2012. Her novel You Be Mother followed in 2017. Sorrow and Bliss, her third novel was published in 2020 in Australia. The novel is being published in 21 countries this year (including in the UK where Emilia Fox is narrating it – I mean bloody hell). Oh and New Regency have just secured the film rights, you may know them from such things as ’12 Years A Slave’, ‘Little Women’, ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’… no biggie!! 

‘Sorrow And Bliss’ out now. x
