Literary Loitering 82 – Peter Rabbit’s Soul-Sucking Eldritch Abomination

We begin this episode with the shocking revelation that schools are teaching children to not only read classic literature, but to understand it as well.

The surprises continue when we discover a surprising inclusion in an Indian children’s book about inspirational leaders, and that Beatrix Potter probably wouldn’t have been happy with the new Peter Rabbit movie. Then, after a brief interlude on Broadway for a “controversial” new production of To Kill a Mockingbird it’s off to Paris, France for some naked art tourism.

Our featured books are The Universe and Me by Toria Garbutt followed by a bit of Sparring with Gil Kane: Debating the History and Aesthetics of Comics by Gil Kane and Gary Groth, after which Andrew got bored and moved on to post-apocalypses and zombies in Salvation City Chronicles by Leon Brown.
