Book Fight road trip! We recorded this episode in a car (Tom’s) while driving to the annual Conversations and Connections conference in Washington, D.C. The book this week is Tom’s pick, and boy is it a bummer. Though a very well-written, culturally important bummer.
Not to worry, though. We found plenty of stuff to joke about, including bears, Tom’s driving skills, Nancy Grace, sharks, and Jay Leno’s quest for love and approval. We also talked about the book, the upsides and downsides of allegory, and whether Coetzee’s narrator is a creep.
As always, you can stream or download the episode here, or click through to the iTunes store, where you can get all past and future episodes for free. While you’re over there, we’d love it if you left us a quick review.
This week’s music is “Reasons to Quit” by Phosophorescent, which you can find on the album “To Willie.”
