Three Percent #152: Seven (Or So) Insights
Getting back on schedule for the new year, Chad and Tom convene to talk about two articles: “7 Publishing Insights Revealed by Last Year’s Top 100 Bestselling Books,” and “Virginia Woolf? Snob! Richard Wright? Sexist! Dostoyevsky? Anti-Semite!” They also talk a bit about YA books and the precipitous decline in reading as people age, terrible Instagram poetry, and the difficulties in getting books from a particular publisher.
They also recommend a few titles:
Scar by Sara Mesa
Tentacle by Rita Indiana
All That Is Evident Is Suspect: Readings from the Oulipo, 1963-2018 by Daniel Levin Becker and Ian Monk
This week’s music is Los Campesinos! cover of “Frontwards” by Pavement.
