In this episode, the KYD team get together (remotely) to discuss Brit Bennett’s expansive, multi-generational saga The Vanishing Half (Dialogue Books), and the six-part ABC drama Stateless, which explores the overlapping stories of staff and detainees at an Australian immigration detention centre.
This month’s recommendations:
• Alan recommends Dark (Netflix)
• Alice recommends Say Nothing: A True Story of Murder and Memory in Northern Ireland and Hunger (Stan)
• Hayley recommends the poetry collection Who Loves At All by Natalie Briggs.
Brit Bennett will be discussing The Vanishing Half on Sunday 15 August as part of the Melbourne Writer’s Festival.
