The Waterstones Podcast - Oblivion
Your chance to hear authors going beyond the book to talk about the themes and ideas that obsess us all.
Sometimes novels come along that seem to show an uncanny prescience for the world we live in. And whilst no one could have quite predicted what 2020 has thrown at us, Rumaan Alam has managed to write a novel about a simple family holiday that touches on the pressing issues of today. Class, race, privilege and confusion at what's happening in the world; all of these will feel familiar, as will the sense of not knowing what to do about it. Luckily, Rumaan is here to talk us through them and to share what really scares him.
