Enjoy the world’s first reading and interview with award-winning author Kit about her brand new book Without Warning And Only Sometimes, published this week!
Kit is the award-winning and bestselling author of My Name Is Leon and edited the pioneering collection Common People. Without Warning & Only Sometimes: Scenes from an Unpredictable Childhood is her story of growing up in a household of opposites and extremes. Her haphazard mother was a devout Jehovah’s Witness who believed the world would end in 1975. Her father was the opposite. Kit was caught between three worlds: Irish, Caribbean and British in 1960s Birmingham. It’s funny, honest and as compelling as her fiction.
Kit joined us in May 2022 at a live in-person Literary Salon to share the world premiere of her effervescent memoir. Also joining us with a world premiere that night was BAFTA-winning writer of The Split, Suffragette and The Iron Lady, Abi Morgan OBE – and you can listen back to Abi’s episode which was released in May.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
