TMR 11.8: “This Is a Bullshot” [THE DREAMED PART]

In his most dangerous gag to date, Chad drinks a giant bullshot as he, Brian Wood, and special guest Carlos Labbé talk about Nabokov’s Transparent Things, transparency as a concept, the wild bed that The Writer is insomniacing in, Uncle Hey Walrus’s hypnosis gone awry, why quarantine time is so crazy yet our dreams are getting so boring, and much much more.

This week’s music is “Comeback Baby” by Kiwi Jr.

If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. You can watch the May 6th episode (covering pages 362-424) 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. You can get all of Carlos’s books via your local bookstore or Open Letter, and you can follow him on Twitter as well.
