In this episode, Rob chats to debut novelist Adelle Stripe about Capote’s rules for the non-fiction novel, Andrea Dunbar, two pint books, indies v big boys and the perfect length (of book). Rob and new co-host, Kate Feld also chat about book stuff, lit nights, karaoke (why?) and the usual BS that tends to come up when they get together. Oddly, they don’t whinge about the UK in this episode even once.
(Interview with Adelle begins at 19:46)
