Episode 116,  Nov 26, 2021, 11:57 AM

Host Michael Hayman welcomes Meg Mason, the author of Sorrow and Bliss, the best-selling novel acclaimed as "remarkable," "extraordinary" and containing a "brutal, hilarious and compassionate truth". With fans including The Times, The New York Times and the likes of Gillian Anderson, Pandora Sykes and Sophie Dahl, its protagonist has been compared to Phoebe Waller Bridge's Fleabag. With an option to be adapted for the big screen by Oscar winning US studio New Regency, this is the story of a writer on a journey – one inspired by one of her own favourite novelists Ralph Ellison, who observed that the end is in the beginning and lies far ahead.
