TMR 18.10: “Looks Like a Lump of Shit to Me” [Ann Quin]

The final episode of this season focuses on The Unmapped Country: Stories and Fragments, focusing on the titular story/unfinished novel, along with a few other shorter pieces. The gang looks back at all of Ann Quin’s books, speculate on what her career might have been had she lived another couple decades, whether of not she should be taught in a creative writing class, and more.

This week’s music is “Web in Front” by Archers of Loaf.
