Overdue Episode 183: The Door

June 20, 2016

“In Soviet Hungary…nanny hires you!”

Time to talk about The Door, a lesser known but very powerful book by celebrated Hungarian author Magda Szabo. It’s set in the 1960s and 70s, so we read up a little on the Eastern Bloc to make sure we knew what we’re talking about. Instead we just make Yakov Smirnoff jokes.

Other topics include old guitar ladies, “groupie states,” and Craig’s love language.
