We’ve got almost too much to talk about in Episode 16, as comedian Caitlin Durante fills us in on Holes, Matt Donaher talks about What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, and Brock Wilbur takes us back to the 80’s with Less Than Zero. What starts off on a tangent about Burning Man turns into a fun conversation about a really fun book and movie for the whole family, Holes by Louis Sachar. There’s a lot to like in this story, and Caitlin shares her enthusiasm for this YA classic about kids at a camp that turns out to be much more than it appears. Next up, Matt Donaher brings us a non-fiction account of the life and craft of Japanese fiction master Haruki Murakami, who’s latest book, What I Talk About When I Talk About Running, tells of his love of running and how it relates to his life’s work, writing. Finally, we’ve saved the juicy stuff for last, as we dive into the depraved indifference of the decadent and indelible, Less Than Zero by Brett Easton Ellis. Don’t judge Brock Wilbur for loving this book, please, and you shouldn’t because it is, in many ways, an incredible book, and has always been one of my favorites as well. It’s one of those books that never fails to shock and amaze. It’s a book that so good, even the story behind the writing of the book is a great story. And, after all that, we leave you, dear listeners, with a few tantalizing cliff hangers. You know, just to keep people coming back and listening for more… Enjoy!
