Welcome back listeners to a new year of unmissable books that we can’t wait to share with you. This week we’re bringing you a reading from Irish author Megan Nolan’s sensational novel Acts of Desperation—one of the biggest books of the year!
In Megan’s visceral novel about love, loss, and self-effacing obsession, she tells the story of an unnamed narrator’s descent into a toxic relationship with the man of her dreams. But their relationship is short-lived when he goes back to his ex-girlfriend and she’s left hopelessly wondering who she is without him.
Acts of Desperation is published by Vintage and available now in all good bookshops.
