Hi, Should-Heads! Today, Miracle Creek author Angie Kim comes back to discuss Klara and the Sun by Kazuo Ishiguro. It's our third book club book, and we absolutely loved it. There's a lot to ponder (what makes us human? can we ever be 100% known, even by ourselves?) and it would take multiple episodes to fully cover this book. Buy it, read it, listen to this episode and then find us on social media to discuss it. We'll definitely have even more to say.
