TMR 16.6: “Fire, Walk With Me” [2666]

After Chad, Katie, and Brian finish recapping the end of “The Part About Fate”—including the Twin Peaks reference, representations of violence, the apocryphal Robert Rodriguez porno, blindness and impaired sight, and much more—they’re joined by Dr. Andrew Martino, a massive Bolaño fan who raises more questions and observations as the group read heads into “The Part About the Crimes.”

This week’s music is “Three and a Half Feet High and Rising” by El Ten Eleven.

If you’d prefer to watch the conversation—and see Chad looking mighty uncomfortable in a tie—you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. And tune in next Thursday at 9am ET for the next episode, “The Next Dead Woman.

Follow Open Letter, Chad Post, and Brian Wood for random thoughts and information about upcoming guests.

Be sure to order Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is available at better bookstores everywhere thanks to BOA Editions. And all of Katie’s translations, especially Four by Four and Last Words on Earth
