The Penguin Podcast: Bloggers' Night by Penguin Books UK published on 2011/06/16 09:37:52 +0000 Back in April we held the inaugural Penguin Bloggers' Night. Think of it like an evening of speed dating, where the internet had a gaggle of new books and authors vie for its affections. And here's your chance to listen to that gaggle: Joe Dunthorne, author of the fantastic, film-spawning debut novel 'Submarine', read from the equally fantastic 'Wild Abandon', out in August. Luke Williams, introduced his debut novel 'The Echo Chamber', and its narrator Evie, who hears things other people can't hear. Jean Kwok explained the autobiographical background to her 'Girl in Translation'. Ross Raisin braved a Glaswegian accent to read from his second novel 'Waterline'. Rebecca Hunt brought Churchill's Black Dog of depression to shaggy, slobbery life in 'Mr Chartwell'. Helen Gordon gave her art critic narrator an awkward car journey in a reading from her debut, 'Landfall', published in October. And Booker-shortlisted author Hisham Matar read from 'Anatomy of a Disappearance', his profound, moving new book about a young boy struggling to deal with the loss of his mother.
