TMR 10.10: “A List of Definites” [DUCKS, NEWBURYPORT]

Jeremy Kitchen (Chicago Public Library, Eye 94) joins Chad and Brian to talk about “a list of definites” about the future, the (pretty silly) controversy surrounding Lucy Ellmann’s recent Guardian interview, the way the themes of Duck, Newburyport make it difficult for some people to read, the ways in which this novel is subversive, and much more.

This week’s music is “Never Been Wrong” by Waxahatchee.

If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. Next week’s episode (up to page 776) will be broadcast live here. And you can discuss this book at the reactivated Goodreads Two Month Review Discussion Group.

Follow Open Letter, Chad Post, and Brian Wood for random thoughts and information about upcoming guests.

Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions
