Three Percent Podcast

Dec 10, 2012

In this week's podcast (Tom's last one of of the year), we discuss the translations we did (and didn't) read from 2012, including Maidenhair by Mikhail Shishkin, Satantango by Laszlo Krashnahorkai, Woes of the True Policeman by Roberto Bolano, and Necropolis by Santiago Gamboa. This kicks off the beginning of our "best of" podcasts for this year. Next week we'll talk about music, and in the new year, Tom will be back to discuss the best movies of 2012.
