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!

4.3 | Agatha Christie, Janie Chang, & Stephen King

In this episode, Lee and Eddie talk creepy friends, weird acquaintances, and dangerous dinner guests. Will Lee ever get to finish her sentences? Will Eddie figure out social norms? Are mice secretly monitoring the human race? We don’t have time to answer all of these questions, but there’s one thing we definitely have time for: Crime! … Fiction!
Fictional crime.

In this exciting new episode, Lee reviews the fantastic, Megan Abbott, Eddie can’t stop herself from reading books that came out before she was born, and Lee asks the hard-hitting questions. Like, why is Eddie such a scaredy-cat? And, will Eddie ever finish watching the trailer for Annabelle Creation?
