Writing Podcast Episode 422 Matthew Benns discusses his debut novel ‘The Dying Diplomats Club’ [Story Sessions series]

This ‘inbetweenisode' is part of our Story Sessions series and features The Dying Diplomats Club by Matthew Benns. Australian listeners will know Matthew as a journalist who is currently editor-at-large with The Daily Telegraph. He has published several non-fiction books, but this is his first foray into fiction – and it is a wild ride! As you’ll hear in his introduction, Matthew had a lot of fun writing this book and readers are going to have a lot of fun reading it. It’s a classic whodunnit, but set in the Prime Minister’s house – with ample amounts of alcohol.
