Booktime July/August 2019

This time, we have an exclusive interview with bestselling author Philippa Gregory on her new novel Tidelands, which is set in on the south coast of England during the Civil War. We also interview author Alix Nathan on her latest novel The Warlow Experiment, the story of a 18th century scientist who employs a man to live in his cellar for seven years.

Chris Vick tells us all about his new YA novel about a boy and a girl who find themselves shipwrecked, and we interview Steve Feasey about his new fantasy adventure novel. Our adults’ bookclub choice is a moving novel set in suburban New York over several decades, and our children’s bookclub choice follows the life of a young magician.

July sees the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing, and we take a look at a wide range of books celebrating this historic event, and we interview author Sarah Cruddas on her new children’s book about the space race. There’s the chance to win a range of new editions of classic Irish Murdoch novels, to celebrate her centenary. We also feature a brand new novel by Naomi Wood about the Bauhaus movement in 1920s Germany, and a thrilling new YA novel set in a divided nation, as well as book from children’s author Katherine Rundell about the merits of reading children’s literature.
