Burning Books—Audrey Magee

Author Audrey Magee tells Ruth McKee which books she’d save if her house was on fire, in the latest episode of Burning Books

Audrey Magee talks about the transformative work of Marguerite Duras, her love of theatre, language and the stillness she needs to write, as she tells Ruth McKee which books she would save if her house was on fire. 

Audrey Magee’s first novel, The Undertaking, was shortlisted for the Women’s Prize for Fiction, and for the Festival du Premier Roman in France.

Sarah Moss describes her new novel, The Colony (Faber) as “a vivid and memorable book about art, youth, love and sex, land and language.”
