Bookshelfie: Joanna Trollope

In this episode Zing Tsjeng is joined by the author Joanna Trollope. Joanna has been writing for over 45 years and is well known for her contemporary works of fiction. She studied at Oxford University and worked at the foreign office before becoming a full-time writer. She writes under the pseudonym of Caroline Harvey, has been awarded an OBE and has had her work adapted for TV.

Every fortnight, join Zing Tsjeng, editor at VICE, and inspirational guests, including Dolly Alderton, Stanley Tucci, Liv Little and Scarlett Curtis as they celebrate the best fiction written by women. They'll discuss the diverse back-catalogue of Women’s Prize-winning books spanning a generation, explore the life-changing books that sit on other women’s bookshelves and talk about what the future holds for women writing today. The Women’s Prize for Fiction is one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world, and this series will also take you behind the scenes throughout 2020 as we explore the history of the Prize in its 25th year and gain unique access to the shortlisted authors and the 2020 Prize winner. Sit back and enjoy.
