Today on Books+ we revisit Milan Kundera's Unbearable Lightness of Being - as well as a book about a journey. In 2012, Rachel Joyce wrote of a man who walks the whole length of England, thinking he might save the life of his dying friend, Queenie Hennessy. But what did the woman at the other end of the journey make of this walk in her honour? Now the author has written another book, answering that question, The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy. And finally, Nona and me by Clare Atkins. Two childhood best girl friends, grow up to be estranged and lead very different lives.
