By the Book: Book Club October 2021 - The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry

A book about books and people who love books - on our book club! This week, we’re joined by fellow reader and book lover Satthiya Kandi to discuss Gabrielle Zevin’s The Storied Life of A.J. Fikry (2015) - a warm and engaging read that tells the story of a widowed bookseller who finds his life taking an unexpected turn when a mysterious baby is left at his shop. We discuss the novel and its pleasures, and then close the conversation off by talking about books that defy easy categorisation.

Produced by: Lee Chwi Lynn, Sharmilla Ganesan
