Synopsis:

450book13moore

What are the books that make the babblers break into a smile?  Perhaps even outright laughter?(Although it must be said that would look weird.  Good for clearing a space for you in public transports, though).  Anyway, babblers list out some interesting picks here, and in true Bookbabble style, a most varied and eclectic mix indeed.  Not just funny books, mind you, but satirical and cynical yet darkly humorous works are also covered.  Plus, critically-acclaimed poet who’s actually crap, and Marcel goes postal.  “Some people shouldn’t be allowed to write!”, he wails.

Bookbabble Episode 25: Unconventional Storytelling
Recorded 14 Dec 2008
Babblers: Bjorn, Gem, Donny with guest Renee Wallace aka Irene Wilde

Synopsis:

The babblers list books that tell their story in unconventional ways.  Books that either have interesting structures, telling the story out of sequence, using stories within a story, or just simply seem weird, a lot of books got mentioned here.  Are they a crutch, a means to an end, or an integral part of the whole experience?  Irene Wilde joins us again for this show as we weigh in the piles of books.

 

Books mentioned (some of them, anyway):
