4.6 | Umberto Eco, Ling Ma, & Book Promises

Oh dang! Eddie’s still on that Gothic kick! Time to get way too meta with Umberto Eco’s Name of the Rose! Lee has been overcome with lyrical awe with Ling Ma’s breathtaking debut, Severance. And we want to know what promises a book makes when you pick it up (Oh no! A talking book, don’t freak out!)

Is William of Baskervilles just a sneaky Sherlock Holmes clone? Will Lee recover from the wonder that is Severance in time to review it without weeping? Is Eddie secretly eating books for sustenance?

Find out in this (not at all) suspenseful episode of… Crime Time!
