    Coming of age

    Coming of age

    Chapter 1: Jamila and Astrid dive into the books that first made them feel ‘grown up’ and the ones that represented their shifts into adulthood. Regular listeners won’t be surprised that Astrid says her coming of age read was Stephen King’s 'It'. Jamila brings us back to the world of appropriate teenage reading by reminiscing about Melina Marchetta’s 'Looking for Alibrandi'.

    Chapter 2: Jamila brings Chang Rae Lee’s 'My Year Abroad' to the podcast, and she is more blunt than usual about a work of fiction.

    Chapter 3: And for the first time ever, Astrid recommends a rom-com - Naoise Dolan’s 'Exciting Times' (Astrid assures us it is the thinking woman's rom-com).

    Recommendations: Two each this week! For adults, Jamila recommends 'Dreams from my Father' by Barack Obama. Jamila then refuses to take Astrid seriously when Astrid recommends Anne Rice's 1976 classic, 'Interview with the Vampire'.

    Both then make recommendations for middle grade readers - Jamila brings '45 and 47 Stella Street' by Elizabeth Honey, and Astrid brings 'The Chronicles of Morrigan Crow' series from Jessica Townsend.

    Yesterday

    Chapter 1: Jamila and Astrid consider why the past still matters, and why women and girls are all too often left out of the history books written by the victors.

    Chapter 2: Jamila brings her favourite musical - Hamilton - to life and discusses 'Hamilton: The Revolution' by Lin Manuel Miranda and Jeremy Carter. Astrid is completely out of her depth for this one.

    Chapter 3: Astrid reminisces about the post-World War II of her grandmother and great-grandmother and discusses 'The Husband Poisoner: Suburban women who killed in post-World War II Sydney' by Tanya Bretherton.

    Recommendations: Astrid recommends Hannah Kent’s 'Burial Rites'. Jamila recommends 'Wild Swans: Three Daughters of China' by Jung Chang.

    Jamila Rizvi and Astrid Edwards are back for the fourth season of Anonymous Was a Woman.

    Chapter 1: Changing it up, Jamila and Astrid explore time, rather than emotions, in each episode. To begin, they consider the clear and present issues of our day through the books they are reading.

    Chapter 2: Jamila brings 'How Good Is Scott Morrison?' by Peter van Onselen and Wayne Errington to the table... and Astrid is not convinced.

    Chapter 3: Astrid introduces Jamie Marina Lau's spectacular second work of fiction, 'Gunk Baby'. Definitely find a copy of this one for your to-be-read pile!

    Recommendations: For those experiencing climate grief, Astrid recommends Jonica Newby's 'Beyond Climate Grief: A journey of love, snow, fire and an enchanted beer can'. Jamila (finally) embraces pandemic literature and suggests 'The Rationing' by Charles Wheelan.
