TMR 17.6: “The Letters Defeated You” [Eltit + Hahn]

In addition to talking about the Trump/Tesla/Lockwood conspiracy theory, our hosts this week discuss “bone avalanches,” how translators are paid, the global literary network available for “experimental” books translated into English, “runts,” Lativa’s obsession with MILF graffiti, “catching fire,” and driving a convertible off a cliff.

This week’s music is “Bicameral” by The Range.
