Odyssey on WAMC Roundtable

Last week WAMC hosted the Odyssey's Joan Grenier, and Emily Crowe to talk about books.

Together Joan and Emily talked about 10 books in under 20 minutes. (Less than two minutes per book). I'm not sure how they do it, but I will say some of the books whose virtues they extolled are listed below.
