TMR 22.1: “Kick the Haze in its Guts” [Praiseworthy]

The first episode of the new season of the Two Month Review—covering Alexis Wright’s Praiseworthy (New Directions, And Other Stories, Giramondo)—start off with Chad crapping on golf, then rolls on into book design and books as objects, the pacing and rhythms of Wright’s work, its humor, its orality, what ancillary information is beneficial, and how the introduction of the two children really snap the first section into place as a reading experience.

This week’s music is “Sham System (The Limiñanas Rework)” by Al-Qasar.
