Three Percent #131: Stories from the First Half of 2017

Now that half of 2017 is over, Chad and Tom take a minute to reflect back on major stories, trends, and books from the first six months of the year. The conversation is quite lively (listen in to hear Chad lose his mind after reading the latest “Book Match” column), and covers issues of bookstore ownership, publicity and the state of book culture, the precarious state of nonprofit publishing, and Yadier Molina’s horrible neck tattoo.

A few recommendations from this week’s show:

Such Small Hands by Andrés Barba, translated from the Spanish by Lisa Dillman.

GLOW) on Netflix.

Stadium Club by Mark Mulroney.

This week’s music is a clip from “The Ballad of Costa Concordia” by Car Seat Headrest.
