This episode is a celebration of queer stories. We speak to Mark Gevisser about his new book, ‘The Pink Line’, which tracks shifts in queer frontiers globally in the 21st century, and Book Lounge staff members recommend books with queer themes.
Jess recommends ‘Juliet Takes a Breath’ by Gabby Rivera for teenagers and ‘The Whispers’ by Greg Howard for 9-12 year olds. Luami, Colin and Vasti discuss ‘Paul Takes the Form of a Mortal Girl’ by Andrea Lawlor, ‘On Earth We’re Briefly Gorgeous’ by Ocean Vuong, ‘Because I Couldn’t Kill You’ by Kelly-Eve Koopman, and ‘They Called Me Queer’, curated by Kim Windvogel and Kelly-Eve Koopman.
