TMR 15.8: “Bourgeois Shitdick!” [Vernon Subutex]
Kaija Straumanis pinch hits this week to talk about Céleste, about spray painting insults, the best forms of revenge, how to upend a system, and whether of not a good dad can be an alcoholic. This episode is a great prelude to one of the major plot points of the trilogy, so listen to this and get ready for next week . . .
This week’s music is “They’ll Never” by Stef Chura.
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. You can join us on Thursday, June 3rd, ask questions, make comments, and correct inaccurate statements. Here’s where you can find the complete reading schedule.
