Jul 11: 20th Anniversary of fall of communism
Jul 11th, 2009 by Sam

  • Hungarian-British novelist Tibor Fischer on the 20th anniversary on events in Hungary leading to fall of  Communism

About his novel:

Shortlisted for the Booker Prize, Under the Frog follows the adventures of two young Hungarian basketball players through the turbulent years between the end of World War II and the anti-Soviet uprising of 1956. In this spirited indictment of totalitarianism, the two improbable heroes, Pataki and Gyuri, travel the length and breadth of Hungary in an epic quest for food, lodging, and female companionship.

Reviews:

“Ferociously funny, bitterly sad, and perfectly paced.” —A.S. Byatt

“A delicate, seriocomic treasure.”—Salman Rushdie

“An audacious act of creativity….Of all the young novelists working today, Tibor Fischer may be the most adept at taking chances in his work.” —The Nation

Jul 25: The Gates Case
Jul 7th, 2009 by Sam

Tony Schinella of Politizine.com and Professor Scott Brewer of the  Harvard Law School
joined us to talk about…

  • THE GATES CASE (of course) – why do Bostonians go ape-wild over the issue of race? Why is
    the skin SO THIN? We talked about this topic so volatile that not only did the Prez get
    involved, but the Policeman’s Union said he’ll regret it.
