Babble, a new book books podcast, launches with a conversation with Sue Nyathi about her new book A Family Affair
More about the book!
The launch episode of Babble, a new books podcast, features author Sue Nyathi.
The Babble podcast will be:
Providing stories from the debut to the renowned and the babble in between. Our weekly Interviews with authors will take you on their journey. From where they’ve come, to where they are and where they’re heading next.
In this episode, Nyathi chats to Megan Thomas about ‘her journey as schoolyard storyteller to finance analyst to full-time multi-booked author’:
Her debut, The Polygamist, is about four women who don’t have a lot in common … except their mutual husband. Next came The Gold Diggers, a story about the lives of Zimbabwean immigrants who have fled to Johannesburg in search of a better life. They have all made the journey for different reasons, but face tremendous hardship nonetheless. Her most recent novel, A Family Affair, published in October 2020 by Pan Macmillan, follows the lives of three sisters in a traditional family which seems idyllic from the outside. As we’ve come to learn from seeming-perfection … that’s never the case.
