Episode 7 : SARAH CAREY
Columnist and broadcaster, Sarah Carey joined me this week for my How To Stay Sane Webcast.
She had some cracking book suggestions along with interesting radio programme suggestions too. And yes, of course, we talked about Bridgerton.
We didn’t get to all Sarah’s book suggestions but she kindly sent them on and here they are:
East West Street by Philippe Sands,
On Identity, Violence and the need to belong by Amin Mahlouf
Dominion, How Christianity Shaped the Western mind by Tom Holland
The Varieties of Religious Experience by William James.
What Sarah called her ‘Spinster Lit’ recommendations
She recommends all the books of Barbara Pym, Muriel Spark and Anita Brookner
She also recommends Nancy Mitford who she says is a hoot.
Other favourites are The Unseen by Roy Jacobsen which she says are one of the most beautiful poetic books I’ve ever read. And other poetry such as Lullaby by WH Auden and ‘What Auden Can Do For You’ by Alexander McCall Smith. And Heaney’s The Cure At Troy
Also recommend On Kindness by Adam Philips, the famous British psychonalyst
