Lauren Beukes and her broken monsters

Lauren Beukes is a sensational author, her knowledge of the arts and culture is a force to be reckoned with. Her love of new people, places, conversation and exchange of ideas is what makes her such a rich and colourful person to have on the show. This shines from the pages of her new book BROKEN MONSTERS. It’s been a year since The Shining Girls which catapulted Beukes into wider recognition so how does it feel writing something of such stature after the success of The Shining Girls? Lauren also sheds new light on new cities, old cities and what she loves the most about London, Cape town and her newest city of all, Detroit.
