Bookshelfie: Sara Pascoe

No-one devours books like Sara Pascoe - on this week’s Bookshelfie she tells Yomi how reading novels you might disagree is a good antidote to an increasingly polarised world. 

Sara is a comedian, writer, actor, podcaster and presenter whose extensive TV credits include regular appearances on panel shows like Mock the Week, QI and Have I Got News for You, alongside numerous other TV and radio programmes. She’s also the author of two books exploring gender in the twenty first century - Animals, and her latest book Sex, Power and Money, a Sunday Times Bestseller which is also a hit podcast exploring the realities of sex work, stripping and porn. Plus, Sara was on the judging panel for the Women’s Prize in 2017. 

Sara’s book choices are: 

** The Magic Faraway Tree by Enid Blyton

** I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings by Maya Angelou

** The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand 

** Under the Net by Iris Murdoch

** Your Voice in My Head by Emma Forrest  

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. The Women’s Prize for Fiction is one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world, and has been running for over 25 years, and this series will offer unique access to the shortlisted authors and the 2021 Prize winner.
