She Rides Shotgun, Rising Man, Ugly American

In episode 4 our heroes, Dave, Andrew and Laura, take a call from Charles Dickens who was upset at their critique of his Tale of Two Cities. Andrew announces a plan to mail a book to any listener that needs a book recommendation. Dave tells a story about two drunk guys and a drone in his backyard at dusk and, yet again, all three of them are annoyed by other people.

Books reviewed in this episode are: A Rising Man by Abir Mukherjee,  She Rides Shotgun by Jordan HarperThe Ugly American by Eugene Burdick and William Lederer.   Audiobook of the week is a full cast production of Neil Gaiman’s charming The Graveyard Book.

  1. Looking for advise in finding new books/authors, other than your delightful podcast of course. What are each your favorite ways to pick a winner, especially in this age of ebooks and audiobooks. I don’t have time to walk the stacks in my library looking at book covers to pull me in. Thanks! Cindy
