Episode 230 — Ben Brooks


Ben Brooks is the guest. His new novel, Lolito, is now available from Canongate Books.

Nick Cave says

Lolito is the funniest, most horrible book I’ve read in years. I was blown away.

And The Guardian says

Both warm and uncompromising, Lolito will be as entertaining for young adults as it is educational for older readers. And if some aspects of the world Brooks inhabits seem alarming, I can’t think of a writer I would rather have as my guide.

Monologue topics: coming through in the clutch, voicemail, prank calls, the word ‘podcast’ as a verb.
