Radio Times: Liz Hoggard interviews Joanna about her new book – Out Today!

In a fascinating interview in the Radio Times, discover how Joanna came to write about women in the workplace. “The 73-year-old writer is redressing the balance with her new novel, City of Friends,’ says Liz Hoggard.

“I just didn’t think there were any serious novels about women and work,” says Joanna. “There were a few novels about women in the City, on the trading floor, behaving like men, getting drunk and having sex with clients. They were tough-girl, ladette novels. But I couldn’t find one about the way women work – because I don’t think they work the same way as men.”
