TMR 20.1: “Then You Do Not Approve of Nabokov?” [MULLIGAN STEW]

Chad and Brian kick off the new season in near hysterics over the first little chunk of Gilbert Sorrentino’s Mulligan Stew. From talking about the rejection letters—and near batshit reader’s report—prefacing the book, to all the bad writing about the “flawless blue” sky, to the ever-changing dialog tags in Anthony Lamont’s detective novel, to the New York Yankees, this episode is a hodgepodge of jokes and observations, and instant love for this wondrous, wooly masterpiece.

This week’s music is “American” by FM Belfast.
