For our 33rd episode, host Jason Jefferies is joined by Randy Boyagoda, author of Original Prin.  Salman Rushdie says: “Original Prin is many things at once: a richly funny campus novel, a painfully humorous portrait of a modern family, an examination of a whole spectrum of religious faith from shaky to fanatical, and finally, in a climax of pitch-black comedy, a thriller too. Boyagoda writes with real panache and drive. An unputdownable book.”
