The group talks about censorship in our literature, and as it happens in our respective countries.  We discuss about what’s clearly bad, why they should or shouldn’t, and the beef about the whole process.  Also, a little on NaNoWriMo, and why teapots can be so titillating they deserved to be banned!

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):

Recorded 5 June 2008

Babblers: Bjorn, Lars, Gem, Donny, with special guest Katherine!

Synopsis:
Bookbabble has a guest!  The babblers are joined by a fellow bookworm Katherine aka Pontalba from New Orleans, as they all mull about how we experience the process that is book reading.  We took a little time to talk about a Nabokov fan’s view about The Original of Laura, a little about the new Bond novel, and dish a little dirt on book forums.
