Episode 29 - Memory, Perception & Fairytales in Tatyana Tolstaya's "White Walls"
In this episode, we marvel at Tatyana Tolstaya's collection of stories, "White Walls," and focus our discussion on topics such as memory, time, perception, art and fairytales (just to name a few). We also, shamelessly, heap relentless praise on her prose and brilliant use of language that she employs to create her woeful and comic worlds.
We hope you enjoy the episode, and we want to give a special thanks to NYRB Classics for collaborating with us during our Overlooked Authors Series. As always, join the conversation on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, and if you need a copy of "White Walls" head over to the NYRB Classics webpage and pick one up! Happy Listening.

Must-listen literature podcast! Some real witty commentary here about some famous and not-so-famous authors. I really liked it and highly recommend it.
