The Waterstones Podcast - Haunting
Your chance to hear authors going beyond the book to talk about the themes and ideas that obsess us all.
You don’t start a new podcast season at this time of year without injecting some thrills and chills. Stephen Chbosky, author of The Perks of Being A Wallflower, has made us wait twenty years for another novel but, with Imaginary Friend, he’s back with a bang. He spoke to us about where his idea for it came from and how he provokes reactions from readers. We also get to hear a genuine ghostly encounter from Jeanette Winterson who will have you checking the doors and windows before bedtime. And Andrew Michael Hurley shares his own fascinations with death and the afterlife and why we’re all a little bit obsessed with what happens next.
