The group discusses their best reads of the year, plus some not-so-great reads as well.  Also, what books best defined the past decade, given all that has happened in the past 10 years?  Plus, Renee treats us to a wonderful rendition of bad sex prose, courtesy of this year’s winner of Literary Review’s 2009 bad sex in fiction award.

Bookbabble Episode 54: A Family Affair

Recorded 23 Nov 2009
Babblers: Lone, Marcel, Renee, Donny, with guests Nicole and Rosemary

Synopsis:

Marcel’s sister Nicole joins us for a chitchat about nothing much in particular (well, if you consider almost 2 hours of chitchat ‘nothing much’).  We did talk about the new Twilight movie, New Moon (where Renee’s teenage daughter Rosemary made a cameo on the show to tell us the word on the street on this phenomenon), manga, Auster and the National Book Award.  Also, Lone’s foray into the Copenhagen Book festival, Bogforum, and was excited to tell her tale.
