This month, Dan Kois, Jessica Winter, and Meghan O’Rourke discuss Jenny Offill’s slim but potent novel Dept. of Speculation. Does the novel’s bifurcated structure work? Is its theme of the difficulty of making art when facing the daily struggles of domesticity resonant? What does that title mean, anyway? Listen along!
Next month’s Audio Book Club will discuss Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie’s novel of Nigerians going west, Americanah. Read the book (or listen to it!) and join us for our discussion on June 6.
Visit our Audio Book Club archive page for a complete list of the more than 70 books we’ve discussed over the years. Or you can listen to any of our previous club meetings through our iTunes feed.
Podcast produced by Abdul Rufus and Andy Bowers.
