Three Percent #175: Biggest News Stories of 2019

On this week’s episode, Chad and Tom discuss Tom’s recent piece on Jean-Patrick Manchette for LARB  and talk about which of his books are best to start with, and why there haven’t been more breakout international noir authors. Then they pivot to this Publishers Weekly article on the “Top News Stories of 2019,” discussing the impact of each of the ten. They finish with a joint plug for Dead Fashion Girl, which is fascinating and unsettling all at once.

This episode’s music is “All My Happiness Is Gone” by Purple Mountains.
