Salinger Versus Predator – Literary Loitering 99

Salinger Versus Predator – Literary Loitering 99

Don your leather jackets, wheel out your tricycles, and join Graham, Sarah and Rob for another anarchic slow-ride through arts, books and culture.

Kicking things off this week, yet another former member of Donald Trump’s staff has released a tell-all book – which is more proof that if you want a book deal in the U.S., you should get a job in the White House. In other news, we find out the truth about J. D. Salinger’s unpublished works, E. L. James announces a “sexy” new book, and we marvel at the rise of a new sub-genre of detective fiction called cozy mysteries – which may sometimes feature cats as the heroes.

Co-founder of The Geek Show Podcast Network. Chief Editor and Executive Producer of, and tangentially overburdened host/co-presenter of several shows on the network. When I'm not engaged in production, journalistic shenanigans or the quagmire that is media criticism I watch movies, interesting TV shows and anime, I also enjoy the arts (you know, classical music and stuff), write many, many things, play and collect a lot of video games, read lots of manga, comics and books, and generally enjoy wallowing in the mass of entertainment media like a hippo in mud. I can also cook.

Let us know what you think ...
