76: Edgar Cantero (MEDDLING KIDS) & Enid Blyton’s FAMOUS FIVE Series

New to Brooklyn (having moved here from Spain), Edgar Cantero drops by the Damn Library with some Meddling Kids and discusses with Drew and Christopher his detective phase, coming up with his style, and why it’s easier to write car chases in English. They all discuss which Enid Blyton Famous Five book they read and why the 40’s British teen sleuth adventure series never quite made a splash in the States. A cocktail with a Mountain Dew ice cube is consumed.
