TMR 10.13: “Dogs” [DUCKS, NEWBURYPORT]
Elizabeth DeMeo (assistant book editor at Tin House) joins Chad and Brian in the penultimate episode of this season of the Two Month Review. They talk family therapy. They talk about the Jim’s encounter with the lioness. They make predictions about how the book will end. They debate whether it’s better to read the book in a few days or a few months. They manage to make it through with a minimal amount of coughing, and only a few wacky digressions.
This week’s music is “Eat, Sleep, Wake (Nothing But You)” by Bombay Bicycle Club.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. Monday’s episode (the last!) will be broadcast live here. And you can discuss this book at the reactivated Goodreads Two Month Review Discussion Group.
Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions
