Two Month Review: #5.05: FOX by Dubravka Ugresic (“The Devil’s Garden”)

In this week’s Two Month Review, Brian drops some excellent knowledge about why this chapter is called “The Devil’s Garden,” opening a window into Ugresic’s genius, guest George Carroll talks about his time in Kolkata, and Chad says a bunch of mildly entertaining things about camping and landmines. The most stunning moment comes when all three reveal their complete ignorance of one particular major work of international literature . . . Overall, a great episode!
