Adele Geras brings her alter ego Hope Adams to Book Club to talk about Dangerous Women, her new novel exploring the fascinating history of the Rajah quilt and the 1841 voyage of the convict ship upon which it was created. At least, that was the intention, but if a writer will hang out in Paris in the 1960s, start out as a star of the stage and write ninety five novels before changing her name and writing this one, there are bound to be some detours...

Adele’s song choices are:

Nanci Griffith: Gulf Coast Highway
Waylon Jennings: Luckenbach Texas
Edith Piaf: La Vie en Rose
Judy Garland : Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Judy Garland: The Man that got away
Emmy Lou Harris: Boulder to Birmingham
The Eagles: Hotel California
Bob Dylan: Don’t think twice it’s alright
The Beatles: Yesterday
Janis Joplin: Me and Bobby McGee
Kate and Anna Mcgarrigle: Heart Like a Wheel
From West Side Story: Gee Officer Krupke
