Ninety-year-old Joan Cade lives in a care home by the sea, with three radios for company. She is a former lover of Lord Haw Haw, Hitler’s wartime broadcaster to Britain, and a one-time aide to Oswald Mosley, Britain’s fascist leader. She’s questioned, on the record. But can her memories be trusted?
Making use of extensive research – including recordings of interviews with former-Blackshirt women conducted in the 1980s – Radio Joan is a gripping novel whose themes are chillingly resonant in contemporary politics.
