Episode 165: John Connolly, The Book of Lost Things

This week’s book was a Mike pick. A novel that draws on elements of familiar fairy tales and mythic stories, yet plays with them in a way that feels original. The author was new to us, but he’s well-known by readers of crime novels–he’s written a series of books featuring a private detective named Charlie Parker. This book seems like a departure for him, though.


We also talk this week about raccoons, because that’s something we do. Plus: the return of a long-dormant segment that has to do with Tom’s pants.
