Two Month Review: #5.07: FOX by Dubravka Ugresic (“The Theocritus Adventure”)

This episode, Chad and Brian are joined by the newest Open Letter employee–Anthony Blake! He joins in on a really fun episode about Russian avant-garde literature, connections between the fourth part of Fox and the very earliest sections of the book, footnotes, invented novels, how to smuggle like a fox, and more.

This episode was not sponsored by Moon Palace Books, but they do receive a nice verbal and visual shout-outs. If you’re ever in Minneapolis, go visit them!

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–Tuesday, August 28th–which will feature Caitlin Luce Baker and focus on baseball, Nabokov, and Dorothy Leuthold.

As always, Fox (and all the previous Two Month Review titles) is available for 20% off through our website. Just use the code 2MONTH at checkout.

    Last year somehow I managed to enter my book for the translation award (unsuccessfully), but this year I can’t seem to figure out the submission process. I would like to try my luck again; please guide me to your guidelines.
