Kate Atkinson

Listen to Kate Atkinson

Kate Atkinson’s first book, Behind the Scenes of the Museum, beat Salman Rushdie to win the Whitbread Book of the Year. Since then, she’s captured readers' hearts with her tough-but-empathetic Yorkshire PI, Jackson Brodie.

Her latest book, the wildly inventive Life After Life, ponders what might be if you were given the chance to live your life again and again, until you got it right. She speaks with Sue Turnbull about her work.

Presented in association with Sisters in Crime.
