This week’s studio guest on Bookmark is debut novelist, Ruth Figgest. Ruth talks to Leigh Chambers about how she came to write Magnetism, a witty and moving story, told in reverse, of a mother-daughter relationship spanning 50 years. We also hear from Cambridge poets JS Watts and Afrodita Nikolova. JS explains why she felt compelled to write her new anthology, The Submerged Sea, while Afrodita discusses the appeal of slam poetry and how she feels about being the first Gates Scholar from Macedonia.
