S1, E8: The Literary Edit Podcast with Cole Brown The Literary Edit Podcast

    • Books

For the eighth episode of The Literary Edit Podcast, I was joined by the divine Cole Brown. His first book, brilliant memoir Grey Boy, was not only picked by Stephen Curry for his Underrated Book Club, but it too is being developed into a TV series by Yarra and Keri Shahidi.


 


You can read about Cole’s original list of Desert Island Books here, and the ones we discuss in this episode are:


The Phantom Tollboth by Norton Juster


The Known World by Edward P. Jones


Native Son by Richard Wright


The Collected Poems of Langston Hughes


Between the World and Me by Ta-Nehisi Coates


The Fire Next Time by James Baldwin


The Warmth of Other Suns by Isabel Wilkerson


The Nickel Boys by Colson Whitehead


Other books we spoke about included Cole’s book Grey Boy, The Underground Railroad by Colson Whitehead, The Water Dancer by Ta-Nehisi Coates, Go Tell it on the Mountain by James Baldwin and Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison.


If you’d like to buy any of the books we discussed in the episode, please consider doing so from the list I created on Bookshop.org, an online bookstore with a mission to financially support local, independent bookstores. If you’re based in Australia, please consider buying them from Gertrude & Alice.
