Show Notes

Globe-trotting author Claire Polders writes the kind of novels and stories that are only possible from one who possesses a deep understanding of the wider world. Her complex characters reflect this worldly wisdom in unique and surprising ways. We read her story "The Men on the Fence," which examines the fear and confusion experienced by a young boy when observing the poverty and desperation that sits in plain view of the guests at a posh resort in North Africa, where he is on holiday with his parents.
