Overdue

A podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. Updates Mondays.

Overdue is a podcast about the books you've been meaning to read. Join Andrew and Craig each week as they tackle a new title from their backlog. Classic literature, obscure plays, goofy murder mysteries: they'll read it all, one overdue book at a time.

 

Episode 024 - Grendel

Grendel
By John Gardner

This week's show is all about revisiting past shows - the book Craig read, John Gardner's Grendel , is a modern prequel and/or retelling of the Beowulf  myth. The book deals with monsters and the nature of good and evil, much like Frankenstein  or Jekyll and Hyde . The book is all about the roles we play and the ways we try to impose order on chaos, much like Breakfast of Champions . 

Anyway, this one's apparently for those of you who have been listening to us since the early days. Thanks for that!
