This month on The Writer and the Critic your hosts, Kirstyn McDermott and Ian Mond, have decided to start with a handful of pocket reviews for books which they have recently read but which may not end up being given the full podcast treatment. Or maybe they will. No spoilers for these right now, though, just some hearty recommendations:

The pair then launch into their critique of the books for this episode, NOS4A2 by Joe Hill (starting at 22:45) which Kirstyn picked, followed by Sister Mine by Nalo Hopkinson (57:30), chosen by Ian.

Here are the links for reviews and articles mentioned during the discussion:

If you’ve skipped ahead to avoid spoilers, then it’s safe to come back at 1:17:20 for final remarks.

For next month — and it will be NEXT month! — Ian has recommended A Tale for the Time Being by Ruth Ozeki, while Kirstyn has chosen to discuss Gone Girl by Gillian Flynn. Read ahead and join in the spoilerific fun!
