We’re back with another episode of the podcast featuring the bestselling literary thriller, Mouth to Mouth, selected as a Best Book of the Year many times over by Vogue, Esquire and even Barack Obama.
Alone on the beach, Jeff spots a drowning man in the rough surf. He rescues and resuscitates him, then quietly leaves when the emergency services take over. But Jeff can’t let go of the events of that traumatic day. He begins to feel compelled to learn more about the man whose life he has saved but as he does he can’t help but wonder: would it have been better to let him drown?
This book will especially appeal to readers of Portrait of a Thief by Grace D. Li and The Talented Mr Ripley by Patricia Highsmith. Written by Antoine Wilson and published by Atlantic, the book is available in paperback now.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
