We love platforming talented new voices on the podcast and this week we’re thrilled to be joined by debut author Krystle Zara Appiah, as she reads from her new book, Rootless.
When an unplanned pregnancy forces Efe and Sam to confront their differences, they’ll discover if what they really want is still each other… A poignant, heart-breaking story about a British-Ghanaian marriage in crisis, Rootless explores themes of friendship, family expectations, societal obligation and motherhood. But above all, it’s a story of love.
Readers who loved Open Water by Caleb Azumah Nelson and One Day by David Nicholls will especially enjoy this gem.
This podcast is edited and produced by Megan Bay Dorman, and programmed by Matt Casbourne.
