TMR 9.04: Monsterhuman by Kjersti Skomsvold (pgs 144-180)

Even though the first few seconds (“On today’s Two Month Review we’ll be talking about . . . “) got cut off, Chad gives his most professional podcast introduction to date, before he and Brian talk about the Nansen Academy, the cyclical nature of chronic illness, the idea of plot points vs. events, and reasons their respective spouses would give for leaving them. (Maybe an all-time TMR highlight.)

This week’s music is “Has It Hit You?” by The Regrettes.

Next episode will cover pages 180-225 and will be livestreamed on YouTube next Wednesday. (All of our past episodes are available on our YouTube channel in case you want to catch up on anything.) You can find the complete reading schedule here.

Season 10 will be the first English-language title to be included, Ducks, Newburyport by Lucy Ellmann, which was just named to the Booker Longlist.

Follow Open Letter, Chad Post, and Brian Wood for random thoughts and information about upcoming guests. And foll0w Marius on Instagram.

And be sure to preorder Brian’s book, Joytime Killbox, which is coming out this fall from BOA Editions.
