The Two Month Review

Over at the Three Percent blog, Chad Post has announced a new podcast called The Two Month Review (you can listen to the introductory episode here). In this podcast, Chad and special guests will devote two months to reading some books, with episodes coming out weekly. The first book to get the treatment is Rodrigo Fresán’s The Invented Part, and the first episode devoted to it will come out May 16. The second book will be Guðbergur Bergsson’s Tómas Jónsson, Bestseller, starting in early August. I’m looking forward to these and hope some of you will find your way there as well!

    So the first episode of the podcast comes out the same day the book is published? That gives us literally no time to even get the book, let alone read any of it before the podcast starts. Sounds like bad planning to me. At least with the second book it is published the month before the podcast starts. That makes a whole lot more sense.

    I haven’t looked at the logistics myself. I know that if you order the book from Open Letter they’ll send it now. Otherwise, yep, I guess you have to catch up!

    Check out the podcast schedule posted here: http://www.rochester.edu/College/translation/threepercent/index.php?id=19542. The first episode just introduces the book in general. The second episode, due to air June 1st, will cover the first 45 pages of the book.

    See, David? Don’t be so hasty :-)

    Well, the beauty of a podcast is you don’t have to listen to it the day it comes out anyway. I am sure that many months from now people first discovering the book will then find out about the podcast and still enjoy it then ……… Now, I could point out that the book is not due to be published here in Canada until May 26th ……… but I won’t.

    :-)
