To listen to the Audio Book Club discussion of The Magician’s Land, click the arrow on the player below.
This month, Slate Book Review editor Dan Kois, slate assistant editor Miriam Krule, and founder of the Awl Choire Sicha discuss The Magician’s Land, the final novel in Lev Grossman’s Magicians trilogy. Does the novel fulfill the promise of the previous two? Is the entire series, as Choire claims in his Slate review, really about Julia, not Quentin? Why is Plum in there, anyway? Is that a deliberate Buffy shout-out?
Next month’s Audio Book Club selection is Karen Joy Fowler’s We Are All Completely Beside Ourselves, the Booker Prize–nominated story of an all-too-human family. Pick up the book and join the Audio Book Club on Dec. 5 for our discussion.*
