A Book Review - Big Sky Novel by Kate Atkinson

Pb Living - A daily book review

Jackson Brodie, ex-military police, ex-Cambridge Constabulary, currently working as a private investigator, makes a highly anticipated return, nine years after the last Brodie, Started Early, Took My Dog. Jackson Brodie has relocated to a quiet seaside village, in the occasional company of his recalcitrant teenage son and an aging Labrador, both at the discretion of his ex-partner Julia. It’s picturesque, but there’s something darker lurking behind the scenes. Jackson’s current job, gathering proof of an unfaithful husband for his suspicious wife, is fairly standard-issue, but a chance encounter with a desperate man on a crumbling cliff leads him into a sinister network—and back across the path of his old friend Reggie. Old secrets and new lies intersect in this breathtaking novel by one of the most dazzling and surprising writers at work today. --- This episode is sponsored by · Anchor: The easiest way to make a podcast. https://anchor.fm/app --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/pbliving/message Support this podcast: https://anchor.fm/pbliving/support

Kate Atkinson

The B&N Podcast

Kate Atkinson is the internationally bestselling author of eleven books including the award-winning international bestseller Life After Life, the Whitbread-award winning Behind the Scenes at the Museum, and four sublime novels featuring the cases of private investigator Jackson Brodie.  Atkinson's storytelling abilities are like no other writer's — her novels combine curl-up-in-an-armchair transporting pleasure with a penchant for unexpected revelations and disjunctions that keep the reader ever more transfixedly wondering what new shift in perspective is coming.  Her latest novel, Transcription, is an almost perfect marriage of writer and subject,  a story of spies and teacups, Nazi traitors and double agents, sexism in the workplace and secrets that lie dormant for decades before returning to life.  The result is an exploration of loyalty and identity, a meditation on the stories we tell ourselves about who we are — and a great deal of fun.  We sat down with Kate Atkinson to talk about Transcription, her dive into of the archives of the MI5, and the magic of fiction.

On that same cold and snowy night, Ursula Todd is born, lets out a lusty wail, and embarks upon a life that will be, to say the least, unusual. For as she grows, she also dies, repeatedly, while the young century marches on towards its second cataclysmic world war.Does Ursula's apparently infinite number of lives give her the power to save the world from its inevitable destiny? And if she can - will she?Presented by Harriett Gilbert.
