Bookshelfie: Annie Mac

DJ, presenter and author Annie Macmanus chooses her five favourite books by women and tells Yomi why she’s outgrown Annie Mac. 


Annie is best known as a BBC Radio 1 DJ where she currently hosts the flagship daily new music show, Future Sounds. She’s also an incredible club DJ, playing at the world’s biggest venues, events and festivals, and has curated her own festival - Lost and Found - in Malta. Her own podcast - Changes with Annie Macmanus - is all about change and how people deal with it. And this year she’s published her first novel - Mother Mother, which she describes as “a story about family ties, addiction, the resilience of women and the teflon-strength bond that can exist between a mother and a son”  

 

Annie’s book choices are: 

** Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret by Judy Blume

** Peig Sayers by Peig Sayers

** Unless by Carol Shields

** The Green Road by Ann Enright

** The Bell Jar by Sylvia Plath

 

Every week, join journalist and author Yomi Agedoke, and inspirational guests, including Elizabeth Day, Sara Pascoe and Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie as they celebrate the best books written by women.
