By the Book: Abandoned Books (And Returning to Them)

Despite our best intentions, some books are harder to get through than others - and sometimes they even get set aside and abandoned entirely. In this episode, we explore all the reasons why this happens, and how modern life might be contributing to them. We also talk about the experience of returning to abandoned books and how that can be a rewarding experience. And then in Footnotes, we discuss an unpublished John Steinbeck novel, 'Murder at Full Moon', focusing on werewolves, murder and small town America, which has been rediscovered in his archives.
