BSG #46: Super Into Twins / The Vanishing Half

Join the #BookSquad for a chat about Brit Bennett’s newest novel, "The Vanishing Half." We discuss memory and time, identity and choice, and performance, as well as our favorite stories about twins. Next, we read some listener feedback on "Magic for Liars" and "We Set the Dark on Fire" and catch up with what’s on the #BookSquadBlog, including a spooky movie series and book and TV reviews. Watch "The Haunting of Bly Manor" on Netflix for our next #Othersode on October 19, and read along for our next #Bookpisode on Paul Tremblay’s "Survivor Song" on November 2. Send your feedback to thesquad@booksquadgoals.com!
