For this episode we read both the 1908 novel “A Room with a View,” by E.M. Forster, and Kevin Kwan’s 2020 novel “Sex and Vanity.” As foundational texts go, "A Room with a View" is an Edwardian era novel – there are trains, and horses and carriages – setting it later than our recent foundational texts. Reminder: this is a spoiler-filled podcast. So if you’re not into that kind of thing, read the book first and come back later.
Jennie – “The Eighth Life (for Brilka)” by Nino Haratischvili
Pete – “Tinderbox: HBO's Ruthless Pursuit of New Frontiers” by James Miller and “Final Girl Support Group” by Grady Hendrix
