This Is The Book: The Vanishing Half
How a story of twin sisters living separate lives brought readers together.
The Vanishing Half, our current Fiction Book of the Month, was first published last year as the impact of lockdown hit us all and, over in America, the murder of George Floyd stirred up debate and protest. With the book now available in paperback we hear from Brit Bennett about the impact of that but also what came before it, from her editor about the battle to get her published and from early readers about why this tale of twin sisters living such separate lives has resonated with so many readers.
