Love the meows during the podcats. So I assume Keith owns cats. Positive points.
Thank you so much for asking Keith about books.
Jonathan Strange and; Mr Norell is probably my favorite book written in the last decade. I’m in the middle of my third read of it this very month. I hadn’t heard that Susanna Clarke had another book out so I’m absurdly excited to go grab that.
Jim, if you want to add it to the SM bookstore I’m happy to use that link. In fact, you could do that as an ongoing series where you ask every podcast guest about what books they have been reading.
And to anyone considering reading Clarke’s books, here’s another tidbit. She was “discovered” in Neil Gaiman’s private writing seminar which she was attending “on a lark.”
Gaiman has multiple times described her as the best natural writer he has ever met. And I feel it. Her prose just rolls along with pure delight.
I second the idea of asking guests for book recommendations.
I loved Jonathan Strange & Mr Norrell, too. As Keith said, it was a super fast 1,000 page read.
Keith Law was a great guest. You need him on more often.
Excited about his critique of Mathew Thompson’s upside.
His take on Cespedes did not sound encouraging, that was disappointing. Does not mean he is right, but all else equal, a more positive take would have boded better for hit future. It doesn’t sound like he is as likely to be the type of impact player his brother was as I hoped.
