Episode 5: Christopher Brookmyre

Charlie and Chris B 1

Don’t feel too bad for Christopher Brookmyre – since that eviscerating review of his 1997 debut, Quite Ugly One Morning, he has acquired a huge audience for novels that combine classic thriller tropes with social commentary and dark humour.

Chris and Charlie talked about their shared experience working for newspapers, the benefit of getting out on the road and meeting your readers, and of course Chris’s own experience of being a debut crime writer.

Chris spoke to Charlie when he had just about finished promoting his brilliant new book, Want You Gone.
