Castaway Books with Kirsten Hesketh

Season one – episode four

In this episode of Castaway Books Kirsten Hesketh author of Another Us and writing as Poppy Cooper The Post Office Girls talks to me about the books that have inspired her life and influenced her writing. Kirsten’s passion for social history, reflections on a peripatetic childhood – eight different homes before the age of eight, and an amusing story about how she met her husband had me enthralled. 

The books Kirsten chose:

Flambards by K. M. Peyton

The Making of the English Landscape by WG Hoskins 

Bridget Jones’ Diary by Helen Fielding 

Rachel’s Holiday by Marian Keyes 

The Rosie Project by Graeme Simsion
