There has been a small change of plan for Episode 17 of The Writer and the Critic. Ian and Kirstyn's special guest, Robert Shearman, has decided to wantonly abandon Perfume by Patrick Süskind as his book of choice for next month, and instead shack up with the newly released Hope: A Tragedy by Shalom Auslander.
Look, there's a cute little baby deer on the cover. Baby deer are called fawns. In animated films, the mothers of baby deer are often tragically killed, resulting in lifelong psychological scarring and abandonment issues for unsuspecting young audiences and baby deer alike.
The Writer and the Critic: Randomly Educational.
