THE BOOK CLUB
Time to talk about the top five books of 2017. How many have you read? The Book Of Dust (Philip Pullman), Why I’m No Longer Talking To White People About Race (Reni EddoLodge), Home Fire (Kamila Shamsie), The Pleasures Of Leisure (Robert Dessaix) and The Restorer (Michael Sala). After 11 years, this is the last hurrah for Jennifer Byrne, Marieke Hardy and Jason Steger, as the show won’t be returning next year. Getting books on TV was always a hard sell, but it’s been a good ride.
