61: Jonathan Lee & “Pereira Maintains”

Jonathan Lee takes a dip into the Damn Library, talking his novel High Dive over a cocktail named after chlorine that surely doesn’t taste like chlorine. The ensuing discussion includes fatherhood, pool water, and political awakenings – particularly those of Antonio Tabucchi’s “Pereira Maintains.” Or does he declare? Of course, Drew and Christopher take a break to chat about the Tournament of Books.
