Description

Every week we discuss the first page--and only the first page--of a different novel, ranging from cult oddities (Tarnsman of Gor) to literary classics (Paradise Lost) to influential thrillers (Jaws). Each episode focuses on that first page and uses it as a jumping off point for an idiosyncratic discussion of media and how we make stories make sense.
