TMR 19.7: “The Good Rememberer (A How-To Guide)” [THE REMEMBERED PART]
Former TMR guest Patrick Smith returns to discuss his reread of the first two volumes of the trilogy, how Fresán’s writing inspires him, hanging on to flights of prose, all of the wind in this book, what it means to fall, dogs, and much much more. It’s a comprehensive, deep look into what it takes to be a good reader, Ricardo Piglia’s “The Last Reader” and the paradoxes at the center of this novel.
This week’s music is “These Things Will Come to Be” by DJ Seinfeld, all for the outro bit of telephones and missing missed connections..
