Episode #11: "The Vegetarian"
Gina couldn't make it for the episode this time but listen in as Sarah & Jade discuss Han Kang's "The Vegetarian." It's a translated novel that we found quite interesting and hard to put into words! Despite the controversy surrounding its translation, "The Vegetarian" is a poetic, haunting and beautifully written book. We're glad you picked this one and we hope you get a chance to read and enjoy it as well! Find us on Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, Litsy, Goodreads and check out our blog at...
