This month, Slate Book Review editor Dan Kois, senior editor Emily Bazelon, and assistant editor Katy Waldman discuss Kate Atkinson’s novel Life After Life. The story of one woman’s many trips through the first half of the 20th century, Life After Life gives its reincarnated heroine the chance to get her own life right—and maybe change history forever.
Next month’s Audio Book Club will discuss Rachel Kushner’s fiery novel of the 1970s New York art scene, Italian radicals, and motorcycles, The Flamethrowers. Read the book, then rev up to join us for our conversation on Sept. 6.
The Audio Book Club is sponsored by Audible.com.
Podcast produced by Abdul Rufus and Andy Bowers.
