Separating the Intrinsic from the Extrinsic; & An Author Special with Candice Carty-Williams

The High Low turns TWO this week! Excuse us while we wallow in (the admittedly shallow) nostalgia of it all.

This week we discuss the Oscars; the ongoing case of Shamima Begum’s citizenship; the Insta-tributes to Karl Lagerfeld; and the Martin Scorsese fan who wants to erase a film ending he doesn’t like. Where does our ability to meme popular culture end; and how will it affect problematic art? Is Animal Hospital without Rolf, just a koala hanging in mid-air? 

Today we have an author special with Candice Carty-Williams, whose debut novel, Queenie, has been making waves ahead of its publication (published by Trapeze on 11th April.) Queenie is the young black female protagonist you’ve been hoping for - and the book is funny, raw and wise in equal measure.
