65. Gayl Jones - Corregidora


Andy and John are joined in her record-equalling third appearance on the Backlisted podcast by Sarah Churchwell, Professor of American Literature and Chair of Public Understanding of the Humanities at the School of Advanced Study in the University of London. The book she has chosen is Gayl Jones' 1975 masterpiece, Corregidora, a novel acquired by a commissioning editor at Random House called Toni Morrison. Before that, Andy enjoys a coming-of-age novel set in 1940s Soho - Rain on the Pavements by Roland Camberton, while John follows the meanderings of Edward Thomas's In Pursuit of Spring, his classic account of a bicycle ride taken from London to Somerset in 1913 (another classic from our friends at Little Toller Books).
