TMR 22.6: “Nuisance Bugger Donkeys” [Praiseworthy]

Chad and Kaija make up this week’s panel as they play the “Slang Game,” then discuss the elliptical meta-structure of the book and how this impacts their reading and the book’s effectiveness. They also discuss Sam Rutter’s New York Times review of the novel, addressing the difficulties of discussing the workings of the text itself given the burden of having to contextualize so much for a foreign audience.

This week’s music is “Under the Milky Way” from The Church, one of Australia’s most widely known bands.
