Talking Books with guest Lissa Evans – June 2021

Talking Books with guest Lissa Evans – June 2021

This month we are talking to Lissa Evans, about her new book, out in paperback this month.

Lissa Evans writes for both adults and children when she’s not guesting on Backlisted Pod. Her recent novel, V for Victory – which is out in paperback from Black Swan in June – is set in London at the end of the Second World War and completes a loose historical trilogy which began with Old Baggage and Crooked Heart. Both hilarious and tragic.
