The UK had a power outage when we were recording the 15th episode and lost Gerald mid recording. Because we didn’t realize it was a power outage, Anais and I kept talking and ended having an interesting discussion about ourselves as readers. We thought you would enjoy this extra episode as we edit To Build a Fire – Jack London Episode 15. You can expect your normal Literary Roadhouse episode by Thursday morning at the latest. We reference several books in this episode including:
The Brief and Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
Snow Crash by Neal Stephenson
The essay ‘Rereading Barthes and Nabokov’ by Zadie Smith in her collection entitled Changing My Mind.
We also mentioned The Saturday Show Podcast
