Reading the End Bookcast, Ep.48: Fictional Morality and The Sisters Brothers

After some technical difficulties and life events intervening in our recording schedule, the Jennys are back at last! We celebrate some bookish news, discuss fictional morality and how it differs from regular life morality, and review Patrick DeWitt’s book The Sisters Brothers. You can listen to the podcast in the embedded player below or download the file directly here to take with you on the go.
