    "Les Rencontres" — interview with Huma Qureshi

    Listen to author and critic Erica Wagner in conversation with Huma Qureshi, writer of “Playing Games”, her first novel published by Sceptre in 2023. In her novel, the author draws a nuanced portrait of sisterhood, family, love and loss through the arc of two main characters, Hana and Mira. Throughout the conversation, Erica Wagner and Huma Qureshi evoke Alice Munro, Ann Patchett or even Ann Taylor, feminine writers who deeply inspired her to write about quiet, but significant, everyday moments. They also discuss how the author returns to the subject of real life informing fiction in “Playing Games”, a recurrent theme in her writing.

A Fiction Fan ,

A brilliant podcast with a captivating host

This podcast is a wonderful addition to Chanel’s beautiful work across so many media. Erica Wagner seems to me one of those rare hosts who is both wickedly intelligent but creates a safe, intellectual, welcoming space that invites the best writing insights and stories from her guests. Simply put, if you enjoy fiction, you will enjoy this podcast. Thank you, Chanel!
