Episode 14: A Thorazined Don Knotts

This week, Ed and John reflect upon the delightful excesses of Dickens, the sadness of eating alone, that Abe Lincoln movie, edible chip-scoopable matrices, and the long-windedness of Dr. Seuss. Also, Ed sings. Follow links to Lydia Davis's "Examples of Confusion", Dana Spiotta's last talk at the Colgate Writers' Conference, Tom T. Hall's "A Week in a Country Jail", and John reading, among other things, his rearrangement of the words in The Cat in the Hat.
