Happy New Year, everybody, and welcome back to The Book Report presented by The Millions! We hope that all of you had a great 2014. But we know you didn’t, because 2014 was a stupid garbage year, and nothing good happened, except the founding of The Book Report presented by The Millions, which ruled, but otherwise, let’s just all agree never to discuss 2014 ever again. Moving on!
Discussed in this episode: A Brief History of Seven Killings by Marlon James, Bob Marley, As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner, profanity, destination weddings, violence, Cool Runnings (dir. Jon Turteltaub), Roberto Bolaño, William T. Vollmann.
Not discussed in this episode: For the first time in this show’s history, there is actually nothing not discussed in this episode. Somehow, we actually talk about literally everything. And it’s only, like, five minutes! Honestly, we’re just as surprised as you are.
