In our second podcast, we go back to our bookshelves again (or maybe put on our ipods, or maybe even just look at the back of the book).
Then we take a deep dive into Darin Strauss’ memoir, Half a Life, which leads to a hot debate about the current challenges of nonfiction.
Finally, Tod tries to stump Julia and Rider by reading things from the internet in the voice of a substandard poet.
If you haven’t finished the book yet, don’t fret– you can revisit the episode any time. And there are no major spoilers– Half a Life is a meditative book so it’s more about style than plot, anyway.
Feel free to leave your reaction to the book in our comments, or tweet us @LiteraryDisco.
