Play • 32 min

This mini episode features an interview with Emma Kennedy: comedian, TV presenter, actor, scriptwriter, author and Twitter star. Emma’s latest novel, The Never-Ending Summer is set in the summer of 1971 when best friends Agnes and Bea decide on one last adventure before their adult lives begin. And while Agnes heads off to London, her mother Florence, sets off on her own voyage of self-discovery into Europe. Emma talks to Kate about how her own teenage life provided the inspiration for the book and about the impact of feminism of women’s lives in the 1970s with the publication of ground-breaking books such as Germaine Greer’s The Female Eunuch.

Emma also talks about a few other books she read as part of her research for the book including Virginia Nicholson’s How Was It For You? and Perfect Wives in Ideal Homes.

Emma has written 11 books, four of them for children in her Wilma Tenderfoot series, as well as her funny and affectionate memoir of childhood camping holidays in The Tent, The Bucket and Me.
