Today in the Isolation Station, Sam is joined by Ruth Gilligan, who discusses her new novel The Butchers: a blood-soaked, folkloric tale set during the '96 BSE crisis in Ireland. Sam and Ruth cover the clash of modernity and tradition, the timeliness of the novel and yet more toilet paper books.
Also included is another exclusive extract of Dan’s plague journal.
The Butchers was published by Atlantic Books. To order, email firstname.lastname@example.org
