Three Percent #96: The 2015 BTBA Fiction Longlist

On the heels of this week’s big announcement of the 2015 Best Translated Book Award fiction longlist and poetry longlist, Chad and Tom run through the books that made the cut and talk about their favorites, which books are on their reading lists, who they predict will make the shortlist next month, and try their darnedest to pronounce a lot of names. Then, they respond to some viewer mail about the effectiveness of ACRs for book bloggers before Tom rants about being the patsy of a fiendish shot-buying conspiracy and Chad rave’s about the Audubon Society’s fiendish take-down of Dark Lord Franzen.

This week’s music is Choked Out by (friends of international lit) The Mountain Goats, whose new album is out this week.
