Ellen Foster, by Kaye Gibbons/The Dalmore 12yo

Maybe they've discussed this book before, but maybe they haven't.  Maybe they've found Huck Finn's dream girl and the nemesis of Holden Caulfield: It's Ellen Foster by Kaye Gibbons.  In this episode:

  • Ethan thinks Michael's butt is very good.
  • Ethan is so angry.
  • Michael controls your narrative.
  • Michael & Ethan have been flipping a coin since episode 1.
  • Michael & Ethan Create Fanfiction out of American Letters: The Best Podcast.
  • They take turns complicating things.
  • We never do anything out of order or rational structure.
  • Our Authors, our Leaders, our Listeners: you are the unreliable narrator creating us.

Next month they'll be reading and discussing Don Quixote by Miguel de Cervantes.  Join the discussion!  Go to the Contact page and put "Scotch Talk" in the Subject line.  We'd love to hear from you!  And submit your homework at the Michael & Ethan in a Room with Scotch page.
