Welcome to a new episode of The Book Report presented by The Millions! This week, Janet and Mike talk about Fox Tooth Heart, the new short story collection from author John McManus.

coverDiscussed in this episode: alcohol, Thanksgiving, family, black humor, teenage boys, poverty, drugs, rock stars, psychic elephants, Thomas Jefferson and what a jerk he was, Virginia, cruelty, gay bars.

Advice given in this episode, but cut for time: If you’re reading this book during a family Thanksgiving, for the love of God, skip “Cult Heroes.” Just trust us. By all means, read it, but not when you’re within 100 miles of your father.
