Three Percent #68: A Few Good Books from 2013

Rather than do our normal “favorite books of XXXX” podcast, we decided to focus on four books from last year that we really liked: Thomas Pynchon’s Bleeding Edge, Javier Marias’s The Infatuations, Keith Ridgway’s Hawthorn & Child, and Arnon Grunberg’s Tirza. (Chad also snuck in a reference to Julia Deck’s Viviane, which is coming out in April.)

Then things devolved—as is probably expected by now—into talking about the demise of Bookish.

Additionally, we each wrote a special post to go along with this podcast. You can get to Tom’s here, and Chad’s here.

This week’s music is When Girls Collide by Múm.
