Two Month Review: #5.06: FOX by Dubravka Ugresic (“The Devil’s Garden”)

Pete Mitchell—who wrote this great review of Fox for Asymptote—joined Chad and Brian this week to talk about the heartbreaking (and semi-profane) ending to “The Devil’s Garden,” the third part of Dubrakva Ugresic’s latest novel. From the idea of a small ping singling one’s eventual crack-up to peeing on the side of the road as you burn it all down, this episode has it all.

You can watch the video recording of this episode on YouTube, and while you’re there, subscribe to the Two Month Review channel and stayed tuned for the next broadcast, in which we’ll be talking about the last half of Part III of “The Devil’s Garden,” pages 144-183.
