TMR 11.1: “We Remember Everything” [THE DREAMED PART]
In this week’s preview episode for Season 11 of the Two Month Review–featuring The Dreamed Part by Rodrigo Fresán and Will Vanderhyden–Chad and Brian try their best to recall details from the plot of The Invented Part, the first book in the trilogy. They do . . . well, question mark? As cracked out as their descriptions might seem, you’re in for a really fun season and a really fun book from one of the best Spanish writers of his generation.
This week’s music is “My Friend” by Dan Deacon. (In part because Chad thought the lyrics were “I’m alive, I’m dreaming,” but he was wrong.)
If you’d prefer to watch the conversation, you can find it on YouTube along with all our past episodes. You can watch March 18th episode (covering pages 1-57) here. And you can discuss this book at the reactivated Goodreads Two Month Review Discussion Group.
