The Superfluous Brothers Karamazov Read-Along Interlude: Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
And apparently, nobody expects their read-along to be derailed by summer vacation. I missed this Monday’s post on Part II due to travel, but I am done the reading, and have surprisingly little to say about Ivan’s Spanish Inquisition story, “The Grand Inquisitor”, despite it being the best-known part of The Brothers K, and thought to sum up its themes.
I’m more interested in talking about “The Russian Monk” chapter, where we learn the life story of the Elder Zozima – surprisingly, as it takes us away from the love triangles and murder aspects of the story.
So while I try to come up with something intelligent to say about that, and essentially bump the whole read-along schedule out by a week, talk amongst yourselves…
Hi there, Scott Sellers from Penguin Random House Canada. I hope that all is well. I’d love to send you an ARC for the long-awaited new novel from Thomas Wharton. We’ll be publishing THE BOOK OF RAIN in late March.
Hi Scott, sure, I will send you an email.
