Literary Loitering 85 - Middle-Class Oedipus Rex

May 27, 2018, 11:41 PM

An annual, grandiose and symbolic event is upon us once again, but before we get into all of that we find out that domestic dramas are apparently crowding out traditional fantasy fiction in children’s books. It’s then time for a long-haul art vandal in the family, fake terrorist movie promotions, and the rising threat of political correctness to the great British double entendre.

After that it’s time for a journey of discovery as Andrew takes Graham and Producer Rob 50 million years forward in time with After Man: A Zoology of the Future by Dougal Dixon. 

Rounding things off is the flamboyant cavalcade of sequins, political shenanigans, lucky cats, cultural appropriation, frills, bad ideas, awful pop music and derisive commentary that can only be the Eurovision Song Contest.
