March 4, 2016

Andrew Cunningham Craig Getting

For February’s bonus show, friend of the show and co-Two Bossy Dame Sophie Brookover (@sophiebiblio) joins us to talk about Speedboat, Renata Adler’s first novel.

This is one of those episodes where the author threatens to overshadow the book itself – Adler is an outsize figure with a long career, and she’s never been shy about telling people exactly what she thinks. And that’s true even though her prose is EXTREMELY on point.
