TMR 9.08: Monsterhuman by Kjersti Skomsvold (pgs 316-360)

This week, Brian is AWOL BUT Patrick Smith brings his A-game. He and Chad talk about the self-conscious humor in Monsterhuman, awkward interactions, the shape and evolution of the narrative as a whole, some info about The Faster I Walk, the Smaller I Am, and much more. A very fun episode that opened as awkwardly as ever . . .

Only two episodes left! And because Chad’s going to be in London for a week, we’ll be broadcasting one more episode on YouTube this week. (The audio podcast version will release as usual on Thursday 9/19.) That said, here are links to the final two YouTube streams: Thursday, September 12 (pgs 360-406), and Wednesday, September 25 (pgs 407-448).

Also, all of our past episodes are available on our YouTube channel in case you want to catch up on anything.

This week’s music is “Rayrunner” by Hallelujah the Hills.

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