Literary Loitering 83 – John Updike’s Pee Maze

This week we get acquainted with the power of language via the medium of Sean Penn’s debut novel Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, after which we find that an unnamed male author has claimed that he’s living proof that men can write believable female characters (we’re confused as well, but that claim has led to a rather hilarious Twitter challenge). In other news, Neil Gaiman is going to produce a new TV adaptation of Mervyn Peake’s Gormenghast novels, and Choose Your Own Adventure books make something of a comeback.

After that we let Producer Rob loose so he can … erm … get some things about Ready Player One off his chest before Andrew regales us with a dramatic reading of an Ernest Cline poem.
