Bookshelfie: Lily Cole

Tuesday, 14 July

In this episode Zing Tsjeng is joined by Lily Cole, who takes us on a tour of her bookshelves and tells us her five favourite books by women. Lily has been a household name for the past twenty years, first famous for her flaming red hair and modelling career and now better known for being an philanthropist, actress, entrepreneur, activist, mother and author. In 2013 she co-founded a technology company that uses tech to solve social and environmental problems. Her new book Who Cares Wins is being published on the 31st July.

Lily's book choices are:

Wuthering Heights by Emily Bronte 

I Am Your Sister by Audre Lorde 

The Argonauts by Maggie Nelson 

A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf

Homegoing by Yaa Gyasi

Every fortnight, join Zing Tsjeng, editor at VICE, and inspirational guests, including Dolly Alderton, Stanley Tucci, Liv Little and Scarlett Curtis as they celebrate the best fiction written by women. They'll discuss the diverse back-catalogue of Women’s Prize-winning books spanning a generation, explore the life-changing books that sit on other women’s bookshelves and talk about what the future holds for women writing today. The Women’s Prize for Fiction is one of the most prestigious literary awards in the world, and this series will also take you behind the scenes throughout 2020 as we explore the history of the Prize in its 25th year and gain unique access to the shortlisted authors and the 2020 Prize winner. Sit back and enjoy.
