Hey, look at that, I made a podcast. Turns out any idiot can do it.
So welcome to YA Rewind, a look back at fiction for children and young adults from the perspective of an ‘almost’ grown-up. In the first episode I talk about what YA fiction is, and thoughts on The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar and Six More after more than a decade.
Seven superb stories, from the world’s no. 1 storyteller: Meet the boy who can talk to animals and the man who can see with his eyes closed. And find out about the treasure buried deep underground. A cleaver mix of fact and fiction, this collection also includes how master storyteller Roald Dahl became a writer. With Roald Dahl, you can never be sure where reality ends and fantasy begins.
Think of this as a test run – I hope to be able to do more with it in the future, and I definitely hope other people will add their voices. I forgot to mention that the collection was first published in 1977, though several stories appeared in print beforehand.
In the mean time, give it a listen and let me know what you think. The email for the podcast is YARewindPodcast@meganchristopher.net if you have stories to share for future shows about your own favorite books from young adulthood.
