AOT #207: Chris Cleave Podcasts Little Bee
Chris Cleave is a columnist for The Guardian newspaper in London, and his first novel, Incendiary, won the 2006 Somerset Maugham Award; was shortlisted for the 2006 Commonwealth Writers’ Prize; won the United States Book-of-the-Month Club’s First Fiction Award; and won the Prix Special du Jury at the French Prix des Lecteurs 2007. Cleave reads from and discusses the new paperback edition of his second novel, Little Bee , which was shortlisted for the prestigious Costa Award for Best Novel. “The voice that speaks from the first page of Chris Cleave’s Little Bee is one you might never have heard-the voice of a smart, wary, heartsick immigrant scarred by the terrors of her past….Read this urgent and wryly funny novel for its insights into simple humanity, the force that can disarm fear.”- O Magazine
