Broken MonstersLauren Beukes spoke to Expresso on SABC 3 about her latest novel, Broken Monsters.

Presenter Elana Afrika-Bredenkamp expresses amazement at Beukes’ prolific output, saying “you were here last year with The Shining Girls and now you have a new book!” and asks how Beukes came up with so many new ideas.
