The Waterstones Podcast - Fear, Hope & Action

Posted on 23rd March 2020 by Mark Skinner

Your chance to hear authors going beyond the book to talk about the themes and ideas that obsess us all.

Fear, Hope and Action

In these uncertain times we bring you a podcast that confronts our fears and anxieties to bring a note of hope and even some ideas about what we can do to make the world a better place afterwards. Jenny Offill speaks to us from America about the current coronavirus pandemic, and how she managed to engage with climate change, the opioid crisis and American politics in her new novel, Weather. Rosmaund Lupton shares her techniques for creating suspense in the reader in her latest real-time thriller, Three Hours. And Julia Ebner shares details of her undercover work to document online extremism in Going Dark and what happens when you come face to face with such real world danger.

This near-unbearably tense thriller is an outstanding novel that demands to be read in one sitting. As a blizzard engulfs the Somerset countryside, rogue shooters force a school into lockdown and a community into a cycle of panic, detection and a struggle for survival. Three Hours is both an exemplary page-turner and an insightful portrayal of radicalisation, rage and redemptive love.
