1. Tin Man & Tales of The City

1. Tin Man & Tales of The City

By Pandora Sykes

Welcome to Book Chat! A new monthly books podcast hosted by Pandora Sykes and Bobby Palmer, which does what it says on the tin: we each bring one book, and we chat. Our one rule? The books have to be more than 2 years old. For our inaugural episode, Bobby has chosen Tin Man by Sarah Winman, and Pandora has chosen Tales of the City, by Armistead Maupin. So join us for a meaty book chat and beware for those who have not read the books: there will be spoilers.

Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and Tomorrow by Gabrielle Zevin
