Episode 32: My Brilliant Friend

Hey drunkers! We’re back with this month’s episode! This time, we read My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante… only like six years after everybody else went wild for it. We’re finally jumping on the bandwagon, just for you.

In this episode, we discuss: juggling the many characters of this book, the abrupt ending that left us with no closure, confusing character motivations, untrustworthy narratives, bad book covers, jealousy mixed with love, and how (through the course of this conversation) we realized that we now want to read the rest of the novels in this series. It’s wild, y’all.

Olivia drinks: wine of some sort
Ashley drinks: a gin and tonic, what the hell else?

We read: My Brilliant Friend by Elena Ferrante
Up next: An American Marriage by Tayari Jones

Music by: Matt Costa!
