58.5 - The Nobel Prize for Literature Tries Harder and Fails

58.5 - The Nobel Prize for Literature Tries Harder and Fails

If the Nobel Prize for literature were a body part, this year it would be two feet stuck firmly in its own mouth. That was going to be the title of the episode, but I figured it was too long. This week we break down a couple of scandals that are plaguing the prestigious award AND we have a conversation with Margaret Pinard from Another Read Through Bookstore in Portland, OR.

Next week we'll be discussing 10 Minutes and 38 Seconds in This Strange World by Elif Shafak.

NOTES

Books Margaret Recommends:
The Butterfly Girl by Rene Denfield
Beautiful Country Burn Again by Ben Fountain
The Maisie Dobbs Series by Jacqueline Winspear
