Episode 175: Adrian Tomine, Killing and Dying

Leave a comment

Look, here’s the thing: These episodes can’t all be winners. Sometimes we’re tired, and scattered, and overworked, and we spend upwards of ten minutes talking about onions? On the other hand, maybe that sort of thing is exactly what you like. Who can say? It’s difficult to quantify our particular desires.

The book we talked about this week is definitely worth checking out: Adrian Tomine first popped up on Mike’s radar after he checked a couple books of his out of the university library, including his graphic novel, Shortcomings, and a story collection, Summer Blonde.

Tomine’s newest book, Killing and Dying, contains six stories representing a wide range of styles and characters.

Anyway, we talked about a bunch of nonsense. But also the book, sort of. Sorry, everybody. We’ll run wind sprints and do squat thrusts until we’ve learned our lesson.

As always, you can stream the episode by clicking on the player below, or you can download the mp3 file. Or visit us in the iTunes store, where you can subscribe (for free!) and never miss another installment.
