TMR 11.6: “Adaptations” [THE DREAMED PART]
Chad and Brian go deep into the underlying structure of the second section of Fresan’s The Dreamed Part, talking about Penelope’s story, her relationship to her parents and the Karmas, and the moment in which she lost her son. We finally get to read about her wrecking house (literally) and see how everything circles back to the start of this section . . .
This week’s music isn’t from The Dreamed Part. It’s Yppah’s “Dreams Like You,” which is somewhat comforting at this time.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation (and if you’re going to watch only one episode, I’d recommend this one), you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. You can watch the April 22th episode (covering pages 255-307) 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. And you can get 20% off The Dreamed Part by using the code 2MONTH at checkout. (Offer only good in the U.S., since we can’t ship overseas, but to be honest, we can’t ship right now! Order it from Bookshop.org.)
