Books & Looks: Real Books for Real Readers was started as a podcast to supplement Blaine Desantis’ website, ViewsOnBooks.com, and expand into audio interviews with authors.

With Books & Looks, Blaine’s goal is to focus on real books that real people will read. At least half of the books he reviews are either new authors or unknown authors that many in the general public are unaware of. After a segment reviewing books or interviewing authors, Blaine ends each episode with a discussion of the movies and TV shows he is currently watching.

This Week’s Episode

Today we welcome Claudia Gray, acclaimed YA author turned historical mystery novelist. We dive into her latest work, “The Late Mrs. Willoughby”, a captivating merger of Jane Austen’s nuanced world-building with Agatha Christie’s intrigue. Experience a unique behind-the-scenes tour as Gray unpacks her career transition, the inspirations behind her new series, and her approach to appealing to both Austen aficionados and newcomers alike.

Discover how Gray has beautifully breathed life into Austen’s characters, crafting a narrative that’s been warmly welcomed by fans across genres. Our conversation also navigates through the challenges of historical accuracy, Gray’s future projects, and an insightful discussion on the often-overlooked topic of neurodiversity.

In the second half, brace for an exploration of contemporary issues, from the concerning state of horse racing to the troubling realities of urban Denver. Don’t miss this episode – it’s sure to charm the book lover in you while provoking thoughtful discourse on societal issues. Happy listening!
