Le Guin —> Station Eleven by Emily St John Mandel —> The Scarlet Pimpernel by Baroness Orczy —> The Count of Monte Cristo by Alexandra Dumas —> White Fang by Jack London —> Animal Farm by George Orwell —> The Way of All Flesh by Samuel Butler —> The Return of the Native by Thomas Hardy —> Tess of the D’Urbervilles by Thomas Hardy —> Death of a Hero by Richard Adlington —> Normal People by Sally Rooney —> Withering Heights by Emily Bronte —> Three Men in a Boat by Jerome K Jerome —> Host: Bronwyn Eley Guests: Sarah McDuling and John Purcell
