It’s Lit But Is It Funny?

It’s Lit But Is It Funny?


This is a podcast where we’re going to take a critical look at one of the most neglected genres in literature: the funny book. In each episode I’m going to invite a fellow writer to pick a favourite example and tell me what makes it work for them.

Chris McCrudden, author of the Battlestar Suburbia series of comic science fiction novels discusses Kate Atkinson’s Emotionally Weird and his own work with me.
