The Three-Body Problem by Cixin Liu - Episode No. 17

Why are Fictional Characters So Real to Us? - Episode No. 16

We do it all the time as readers, but it's a great mystery: why and how do we get emotionally involved in fictional characters? It's a massive question and we bring in Spinoza, Cervantes, Shakespeare, Harold Bloom, Walter Isaacson, Brad Pitt and Quentin Tarantino to help answer the question. There is no one answer, of course, but we have fun chasing down the various leads...Music: “Sunday Smooth" by Scott Buckley, used under a Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License - www.scottbuckley.com.au.

The prose is electric. The characters unforgettable. It's fun and loathing between two covers. We take it on.

Conversation on Hebrew & Arabic Literature - Episode 11

We chat with special guest Josh Calvo, a writer and translator of Arabic and Hebrew literature. We talk about Israeli writer S.

Are the Beat Writers Still Important? - Episode 10

The Beats writers were a force in American culture for decades. But are they still relevant today? Are they great writers or just curious cultural figures? Does anyone under 40 still care about them?

Anniversaries by Uwe Johnson - Episode 9

This is the book everyone is talking about. It's a 50-year-old book, just republished by the New York Review of Books Classics. We disagree sharply on the book's merit, while finding time to discuss the challenge of reading big books, why Thelonious Monk loved the Hudson River, what happened to Harold Brodkey and a new biography of the Chinese master Li Bai.
