Book award fiction finalists podcastby Guy Somerset
Listen to our panellists discuss the three shortlisted titles.
No illustration for this post: I wouldn't want to tip you off by focusing on any one of the three finalists: The Trouble with Fire, by Fiona Kidman; Rangatira, by Paula Morris; and From Under the Overcoat, by Sue Orr.
Before we podcasters make our call, we turn the books inside and - yes - out. And I ensure I'm going to be on a table of one at the awards ceremony.
