TMR 13.10: “Madhouse Babble” [ADA, OR ARDOR]
As Chad and Brian finish part III of Ada, or Ardor, they talk about Ada and Van’s reunion, the passage of time within this book, moustaches, who knows what about whom, and much more.
This week’s music is “Endless Night” by Holy Motors.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. You can watch episode 11 live on Friday, November 27th at 3pm where you’ll also have the opportunity to ask questions, make comments, or correct inaccurate statements.
And be sure to get in touch if you’d like to be a guest on this season (or the next, which is on J R by William Gaddis), or if you have any critical articles on Ada that you think we should read.
Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is now officially available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions.
