Radio 2 Book Club – The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker

The next book to be discussed on the Radio 2 Book Club will be The Age of Miracles by Karen Thompson Walker.

Set in a world in which the rotation of the earth is gradually slowing down, and periods of daylight and darkness are growing longer,  The Guardian describes the book as “a delicate and emotionally sophisticated coming-of-age tale” but laments the “sci-fi oafishness” of the central concept. Intrigued? Find out more about the book, and download an extract, from the Book Club website.

You can catch the book club on Monday 25th June from 18.00, as part of Simon Mayo’s 17.00 – 19.00 Drivetime show. If you missed previous shows, including discussion of Gold by Chris Cleave and Mark Haddon’s The Red House, you can catch up via the website.
