In This Episode

In this week’s Book Club podcast, my guest is the writer Susanna Moore. Best known for her pitch-black erotic thriller In The Cut, recently republished to huge acclaim, Susanna has just published a superb memoir of her young womanhood in Hawaii and Los Angeles – from shopgirl at Bergdorf’s to model and actor, script reader for Warren Beatty and lover to Jack Nicholson – called Miss Aluminium. She talks about writing the past, sexual violence, the rage that inspired In The Cut, the young Roman Polanski – and why clothes matter.
