Literary Friction is a podcast about books and ideas, hosted by two friends: Carrie, a literary agent, and Octavia, a writer and ex-academic. Our episodes include in-depth interviews with brilliant authors about their latest work, conversation built around a theme (anything from intimacy to masculinity to translation to joy), and lots of book recommendations. You can find us on all major podcast platforms, and you can subscribe on Patreon here: www.patreon.com/litfriction and get an extra minisode each month.
We aim to bring a broad range of books, topics and voices to our audience, and we're thrilled to finally be able to put all our recommendations and featured books in one place, and support independent bookshops at the same time. We won't take any commission from orders made through our list, so if you choose to buy anything from our page 20% of the sale price will go back into the pool generated for local bookshops. Alternatively, you can buy anything you like the sound of through the pages of our favourite bookshops on here: Pages of Hackney, and Burley Fisher Books. Happy reading!
