It’s hard to give five stars to a podcast whose subject is a congenital three-star reviewer, but it’s a winning production on par with a shambolic Richard Katz bootleg.

My first Franzen was Purity. Looking forward to episodes on his non-fiction. Thanks for putting this together.
This podcast is /actually/ good! Hosts are smart and insightful, widely-read, and engaging.

Get hyped for his latest novel with this intelligent and hysterical look back at Franzen’s novels. Thank you to this podcast for ensuring I never waste my precious time on earth on his first two. This podcast is so good.
