    E12: Sheena Patel's I'm A Fan

    E12: Sheena Patel's I'm A Fan

    We've looked at a few books on JGBC with themes desire as of late, and 2022's I'm A Fan took on a life of its own post-release for absolutely nailing the topic through a modern day lens. It's an astute, sharp and witty book that Joel has recommended "the arse out of" since it came out. So yeah! A good one this week!

    E11: Joel Golby's Four Stars

    E11: Joel Golby's Four Stars

    In this episode, Joel's broken every rule in the book and reviewed his own book, which is a book of reviews. It's all very meta, but essentially, 'Four Stars', his new book comes out in a couple days and he's broken it down, told some anecdotes, shared some influences and given you the first taste of what's to come.

    E10: Jonathan Dollimore's Desire

    E10: Jonathan Dollimore's Desire

    In the tenth episode of Joel Golby's Book Club, we're exploring Desire, a memoir from Jonathan Dollimore; a book which explores theories of identity, mortality and, as the name might suggest, desire. It's also book filled with motorbikes (cool), dick sucking (cool) and falling in love with Latvian dudes you don't know the surnames of (cool).

    E9: Ann Beattie's Chilly Scenes Of Winter

    E9: Ann Beattie's Chilly Scenes Of Winter

    This week, Joel dives into the oldest book so far. From 1976, it's Ann Beattie's 'Chilly Scenes Of Winter' - a book in which a pretty normal guy called Charles - deliberates over whether he's zipping up his coat too quickly. Is it good? Let's find out!

    E8: Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son

    E8: Denis Johnson's Jesus' Son

    Joel's not messing around on this one and has pulled in one of his top ten books of all time (and he only discovered it last year). From 1992, Jesus' Son by Denis Johnson isn't quite a novel but it's also not quite a collection of shorts stories - more a collection of questionable memories from an incredibly unreliable narrator called 'Fuckhead'.

Love this

Great to hear Joel’s take on these stories. Enjoyable podcast.

Decent

Entertaining, Joel packs a lot into q short episodes. A little confused, tho, by his bewilderment that Annie Proulx would have such insight into the intensity of a young man’s sexuality - perhaps because it’s not so different from a woman’s?
