Tuesday Book Club: Kay Kerr’s Please Don’t Hug Me
2SER’s Alex James and Andrew Pople return for another chapter of Book Club with Kay Kerr’s debut novel Please Don’t Hug Me.
Erin is looking forward to schoolies, at least she thinks she is. But her plans are going awry. She’s lost her job at Surf Shack after an incident that clearly was not her fault, and now she’s not on track to have saved enough money. Her licence test went badly, which was also not her fault: she followed the instructor’s directions perfectly. And she’s missing her brother, Rudy, who left almost a year ago. But now that she’s writing letters to him, some things are beginning to make sense.
Please Don’t Hug Me depicts life on the cusp of adulthood—and on the autism spectrum—and the complexities of finding out and accepting who you are and what’s important to you
Catch 2SER’s Andrew Pople on Final Draft every Wednesday evening at 6PM and each Saturday morning at 10AM.
