Summary

For the Club’s first meeting, the book of the week is Denise Mina’s The Less Dead

Graham talks to Denise herself about her brand of ‘tartan noir’ while our clubbers reveal their opinions after reading it. We go behind the mic to hear from actress Maxine Peake on bringing to life DH Lawrence’s classic, Lady Chatterley’s Lover

All this and plenty more including recommendations for the best suspense novels and picks from Amazon’s romance chart.

Just What Was Missing

I have been looking for a book club, I love reading but also love to hear people's views on books. Graham Norton does a great job of hosting the podcast. Good to hear from authors and honest reviews from readers.
Will be listening again!

Great idea!

It is always difficult to choose a book and having many different opinions and perspectives helps a lot…

Excellent Addition to my Audible Library

Enjoyed every minute of this podcast, and now have two new titles for my wishlist.
Loved the discussion and Graham Norton's unfailing humour was a real joy.

Excellent original podcast.

Book clubs or book discussions come in a variety of ways. This podcast with Graham Norton and Alex Clark was fresh , easy on the ears and it works well. Good mix exploring new and older books. Definately I will carry on listening.

Gordon and Alice read books

This is a joy. Graham and Alex are going to be a very funny wonderful antidote to the all to often snobbish and elitist, inaccessible literary programmes. A refreshing joy.
