Literary Loitering 98 - Badgers Don't Knit

Feb 08, 2019, 10:43 PM

Literary Loitering returns for another year of cultural anarchy, and with all the gang present and correct there should be nothing to stop us!

Except for technology (apologies for the poor audio quality in parts of this episode). 

Anyway, the show must go on as they say, and this week we discover that the sale of physical books has increased and second-hand bookshops are becoming more popular. In other news, some fascist books were left in an old red phone booth that had been converted into a library (that’s some weird Doctor Who stuff right there), the argument between twitchers and birders continues unabated, and Stephen King saves a newspaper review section. 

After that it’s time to talk about the Secret Santa we did last year, and first up to bat is Rob with Charles Foster’s gloriously eccentric treatise on nature and animals, Being A Beast. 

Oh, and as further reading after that book, then we recommend the following: 

After Man: A Zoology Of The Future by Dougal Dixon (which we reviewed on episode 85)

Straight From The Horse’s Mouth: How To Talk To Animals And Get Answers by Amelia Kinkade

Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus by John Gray

Why Men Don't Listen and Women Can't Read Maps by Allan Pease and Barbara Pease

Animal: The Autobiography Of A Female Body by Sara Pascoe
