Ep 170: Mr Salary by Sally Rooney

Discussion Notes: Mr Salary

This week’s story: Mr Salary by Sally Rooney

Next week’s story: Sole Solution by Eric Frank Russell

Rated: Explicit

Gerald, Andy and Anais discuss “Mr Salary” by Sally Rooney, who has been described as the first great writer of the millennial generation. All three hosts loved Rooney’s style, though Andy had a personal bone to pick! Gerald raised an interesting question about whether or not the author’s politics and worldview are embedded in a text that is ostensibly not political (in so much as anything can be apolitical). Anais does her best to find political meaning.
