Welcome to episode 69 of the Lesbian Book Club, where I interview UK author Kate Davies. Kate is a novelist, screenwriter and author of children’s books. Her debut novel In At The Deep End won the 2020 Polari Prize and was shortlisted for the Bollinger Everyman Wodehouse prize for comic fiction. The Guardian described it as ‘without doubt, the afterparty book for anyone looking to continue their Fleabag fun’. Kate talks about writing from a place of truth, celebrating queer London, living her best life in a Scottish castle, and writing stuff that shocks you. “There’s stuff in the book I’d be embarrassed to read out loud!”
As usual, I do a run-down of the Amazon Lesbian Fiction charts in the US & UK, as well as updating you on the latest news of lesbian fiction conferences & awards season. I hope you enjoy – Kate was a fabulous guest!
