As if you need any more encouragement, the upcoming autumn season will include interviews with the inimitable Eliza Clark about her genre-bending new novel Penance; Bristol-based nature writer Noreen Masud about her stunning memoir A Flat Place; the politically incisive Nathalie Olah about her upcoming book on social class Bad Taste, poet and writer Daisy Lafarge on the poetics of infection in her Lovebug and internationally acclaimed writer Sheila Heti discussing her forthcoming book Alphabetical Diaries. They will close the season with Bristol-based writer Marianne Brooker about her prize-winning and poignant debut Intervals, which harnesses the political potential of grief to raise essential questions about choice, interdependence and end-of-life care.
