A new season of Writers & Company with Eleanor Wachtel begins Sept. 12
Writers & Company on CBC Radio is back for another exciting season beginning Sept. 12, 2021 with an interview with 2021 Booker Prize-longlisted author Sunjeev Sahota.
Sahota is a British novelist whose debut novel, Ours Are the Streets, was published in 2011 and whose sophomore novel, The Year of the Runaways, was shortlisted for the 2015 Man Booker Prize and awarded a European Union Prize for Literature in 2017. His work touches on themes of memory, displacement and the immigrant experience.
The British author's new book, China Room, is a novel that examines themes of love, oppression and the pursuit of freedom.
The novel alternates between India and Britain to explore the loosely connected stories of a woman and a man separated by more than half a century but united by blood.
