Two Month Review #6.10: The Book of Disquiet (sections 359-393)

Probably the most controversial Two Month Review to date, so buckle up! Are there unhinged rants? You bet! Questions regarding the marketing and “completeness” of the New Directions edition? Yep! A long discussion about the differences in voice between the both excellent Margaret Jull Costa and Richard Zenith translations? That too! It’s a jam packed penultimate episode that’s not to be missed.

As always, you can find the video for this episode on our YouTube channel, where we livestream the episodes. Next week’s podcast will cover sections 359-393 (pages 388-421 in the U.S. edition). Stay tuned for more details about the exact time.
