Description

Adam talks with British writer Nina Stibbe, about David Sedaris, sex and inappropriate male behaviour from the 70s and beyond, and the dangers of writing about real people. There's also some discussion of dentistry and thigh vaginas.

Nina is the author of 'Love Nina- Dispatches From Family Life' (2013), a collection of letters that she wrote to her sister Vicky in the 80s while working in North London as a nanny to the children of Mary-Kay Wilmers, who was the editor of the London Review of Books.

'Man At The Helm' (2014), is the first in a series of comic novels about Nina's fictional alter ego Lizzie Vogel, in which the young Lizzie and her siblings trying to find a suitable man for their wayward Mum.

'Paradise Lodge' (2016) finds the teenaged Lizzie working at a care home for the elderly.

The latest in the Lizzie Vogel series is called 'Reasons To Be Cheerful' (2019) and this time the story takes place in the early 80s as Lizzie finds work as a dental assistant, a job that Nina herself did for several years as a young woman.

This conversation was recorded in London, March 2019

First time commenting. I’ve listened to Adam and his lovely conversations since their emergence. Nina and Adam seemed to have a natural report. I sincerely enjoy listening to such honest comparisons of their upbringing. Top banana

Mens' behaviour. I was also shocked by the things female friends have told me about things men, hopefully, used to do. I started to wonder whether I was the weird.
