Jessie CaveBook Shambles
Comedian, actor, writer and podcaster Jessie Cave joins Robin and Josie this week to talk about her debut novel Sunset which is out now. They talk about why she chose to write about grief, hating being on stage, working with her family and worrying that whatever the book ended up being it’d just be labelled as ‘Harry Potter chick lit’.
A warning as well that this episode contains some talk about sexual assault and death that may be upsetting for some listeners.
