Write Reads #23 Half World by Hiromi Goto

HalfWorldbyHiromiGotoTania and Kirt wrap up the year with some taking stock, looking back, and fondly remembering. We also end 2015 with a fantastic, and fantastical, novel. Half World generated a lot of topics for us to cover. We talk about Japanese mythology, the immigrant experience, feminism, and the subversion of western fantasy tropes (it sounds a lot more intellectual than it is). We hope it makes your ears happy, even though the recording isn’t the best. Kirt did do a sound check, and everything seemed fine, but the microphone seems to have wanted to focus on Tania’s voice. Can you blame it?

We also officially announce that our next book pick for the January podcast will be the most recent Giller winner Us Conductors by Sean Michaels.
