Sorry to have kept you waiting, Friends. Here, at long last, is our discussion of our non-fiction pick for our 50th PODCAST! Our streak of picking really good reads for this category remains intact. Listen to us talk about it, and then maybe let us know what you thought of the book, or what you thought of what we thought.
Our Classic CanLit pick is going to be The Apprenticeship of Duddy Kravitz by Mordecai Richler. We hope you’ll join us for our discussion of this old nugget of the CanLit canon. The following podcast will be Kirt’s Birthday Pick, River of Stars by Guy Gavriel Kay.

Oooh okay, I hated Duddy Kravitz in high school. But I also hated Fifth Business, and would actually get the books mixed up, like they were both just boring old CanLit by boring old dead guys (uhhh Google tells me Richler was actually life when I read it, and Davies had been dead less than a year! WTF).
I would love to read River of Stars…. would have to start real soon, ahead of my War and Peace schedule! Do you think I can do it?
I have nothing but confidence in you! I think you could even do a Duddy re-read! – Kirt
