Books we love, books we hate. Jay and Phil, two old friends with wildly different tastes recommend books for each other, then discuss them, sometimes with surprising results

    Autumn

    Autumn

    Autumn, a collection of essays  by Karl Ove Knausgaard, is Jay's pick on this episode. 

    Will the book become Phil's gateway drug to other Knausgaard collections or do Autumn's leaves blow away in the wind of criticism? (That sounded better in my head)

    And how does Phil manage to bring baseball into the conversation...yet again?

    Knowledge of Angels

    Knowledge of Angels

    Jay  drags out every philosophy and theology book he owns to try and keep up with Phil on this one. Turns out Knowledge of Angels involves a child raised by wolves, a shipwrecked atheist and  a  Grand Inquisitor.  Spoiler alert, he's not called the Grand Inquisitor because he's a really good listener.

    Catch-22

    Catch-22

    "You mean there's a catch?"

    "Sure there's a catch," Doc Daneeka replied. "Catch-22.  Anyone who wants to get out of listening to this episode of Dog-eared and Cracked isn't really listening."

    In this episode, Jay swears a loyalty oath and Phil writes 'share' on a piece of paper in response to Jay's request for a share of Dog-eared and Cracked profits. 

    This episode is a Dog-eared and Cracked 1st,  as Jay recommends a book for Phil that neither of them has read. Will this  reckless break in protocol create unresolvable chaotic havoc? Or will Jay learn to stop using excessive adjectives? Listen in to find out.

    The Library Book

    The Library Book

    Jay discovers that it's not just any library book that Phil has picked for him to read.  It's The Library Book by Susan Orlean. 

    What does Jay think about a book full of maps, corduroy suits, chili dogs and celebrity autographs? Does Phil rate his pick using the Dewey Decimal System? Or does he return it to his local librarian before it becomes overdue?

    The Warriors

    The Warriors

    Monkey jackets and ice cream pants!?! What kind of book has Jay picked out now? For all you boppers out there in the big city, Jay and Phil (that real live bunch from Coney), have nowhere to run and nowhere to hide as they take on Sol Yurick's 'The Warriors' and its 1979 movie adaption.   

    Leave us feedback on Facebook or at dogearedandcracked.ca (especially if you would like to point out that Phil's insistence that Cyrus was Greek is obviously incorrect).
