Discussion Notes: Eminence
Next week’s story is “Amundsen” by Alice Munro.
On today’s episode, we had a great discussion of “Eminence” by Caroline Casper. For the first time, we found a story we all liked; I’ll try not to let that happen again. I enjoyed how even though we all enjoyed the story, we liked it for different reasons. The messy podcast is on the Youtube page, and the glistening audio version will be available by morning. Don’t forget to check out Caroline Casper’s bio and thoughts here.
Speaking of the Author Spotlight, this is a new blog post series where we will write a post highlighting the author of that week’s story. Look for those posts every Monday.
We do have a rating scale. For the history of this goofy system, see Anais’s post “Read Short Stories or Ray Bradbury Cries.” You gave last week’s story, “The Circular Ruins” by Jorge Luis Borges, 4 Bradberries.
On a scale of 1-6 Bradberries, how do you rate “Eminence”? Tell us in the comments below, and we will give you the final tally on the next episode.
Next week’s story is “Amundsen” by Alice Munro. This is our first Pulitzer Prize winning author! Alice Munro is widely considered a master of the short story, so we’re pretty excited to read her work for the first time.
We hope you’ll enjoy the story, and join us next week for the discussion. The podcast will be available on iTunes and other podcatchers by Wednesday morning.
