Mermaids, Spelling Pedant Confession, Daryl Gregory
Author Daryl Gregory joins Simon for the Book Club to discuss his latest novel, Spoonbenders. Think a Wes Anderson film meets Penn and Teller! We'll also unleash a new Confession.
Whether you're an avid reader, or haven't picked up a book in a while - the Radio 2 Book Club is the place for you to find new and interesting novels.
Simon welcomes American author Daryl Gregory to discuss his latest novel, Spoonbenders. Think a Wes Anderson film meets Penn and Teller! Compassionate, boisterous, and just a little bit magical, this novel is a book about the importance of family and the uncanny power of love. It tells the story of the legacy and legend of a dysfunctional, normal, entirely unique family across three generations of big personalities and socially inept recluses - each cursed with the potential of being something special.
We'll also unleash a brand new Confession, play your oldies selections and have the latest sport with Matt Williams.
