Episode Notes

On this episode, we bring you the delayed discussion of our Books and Boba June 2019 book club pick, Kafka on the Shore, by Haruki Murakami, a metaphysical coming-of-age story with talking cats, demon brand avatars, and lots of icky sex. Marvin and Reera do their best to talk about their first Murakami experience, breaking down the story and discussing the many metaphors in the book, as well as some of the parts that have not aged well.
