AOT #252: Chris Cleave Podcasts Incendiary
Chris Cleave, the acclaimed author of Little Bee, which was short listed for the Costa Prize for Best Novel, reads from and discusses the paperback edition of his debut novel Incendiary. A distraught woman writes a letter to Osama bin Laden after her four-year-old son and her husband are killed in a massive suicide bomb attack at a soccer match in London. In an emotionally raw voice alive with grief, compassion, and startling humor, she tries to convince Osama to abandon his terror campaign by revealing to him the desperate sadness-“I am a woman built on the wreckage of myself”-and the broken heart of a working-class life blown apart. A surreal vision made brilliantly, viscerally powerful and undeniable, Incendiary is a stunning novel.
