First Paragraph Special #2 - "Chaos No-Rules Anarchy Special"
Chaos! No Rules! Anarchy! It's a Michael & Ethan in a Room with Scotch Special! We're going to once again read the first paragraph of two different books and discuss them as if we'd read the whole book! English professors, assign us to your classes.
Ethan's book is The Confidence Man by Herman Melville, an oldy but a goody.
Michael is a little more with-the-times, bringing The Silent Wife by A. S. A. Harrison, the most popular book of the moment.
And this episode's punishment: "Lines in Reply to the Beautiful Poet who Welcomed News of McGonagall’s Departure from Dundee" by William McGonagall.
Join the discussion! Go to the Contact page and put "Scotch Talk" in the Subject line. We'd love to hear from you!
Coming in one week, season 2, beginning with the discussion of The House of Special Purpose by John Boyne - Read along!
Your Hosts: Michael G. Lilienthal (@mglilienthal) and
